One God.

Listening to the news this morning. Hearing of the carnage on the streets of Paris, I weep! I weep for those killed and for their loved ones now plunged into the dark area of mourning. I weep for the young and the old, those killed indiscriminately on the streets and for the loved ones they have left behind.

But what I weep for most is God.

All of this killing, all these acts of brutality are being done in His name!

My God , their God....the same God for us all and they kill us as we kill them in His name...

My tears fall as I pray....because there is only one God and He/She must also be weeping for frail humanity too.

Lord, hear our prayer!

  1. I am appalled at these acts of murderous barbarity in Paris.

    My thoughts are for all the victims, the dead, injured and traumatised; and for their relatives and friends.

    We must be vigilant, but we must not blame all Muslims indiscriminately for the actions of a few extremists.

    Unfortunately, all religions and none have extremists who hate some groups for some reason.

    I do hope that the vast majority of peoples around the world recognize this, and do not over react.
