I, like many, was horrified by the terrorist attacks in Paris. Such senseless slaughter has rightly been condemned, and the blanket media coverage these events attracted is no surprise. But it occurs to me that we are very biased in the West. In Nigeria Islamic extremists reportedly massacred over 2,000 people, and Christian militias have been killing Muslims in the Central African Republic, and yet this gets little attention. These people are no less precious to God than those who died in Paris. Let’s remember we’re part of a global family, and we’re called to stand with all those who suffer. Lord, open our eyes.

I'm a vicar of a wonderful church in Coventry. I have a passion for writing and creating. As part of my job I have the amazing job of telling people all about Jesus and God's love for them. One of my favourite ways of doing that is by imagining what it was like to be there and meet Jesus face to face. View all posts by revandym
