Reflections on a Day of Cowardice and Courage

Monday Reflections

A similar national image for every country in the world would be appropriate for all the wickedness and violence we see around the world.
A similar national image for every country in the world would be appropriate for all the wickedness and violence we see around the world.

The bombing in Boston is the news of the day. As I write the death toll is 3 dead and 130 wounded.

Traumatic injury to lower extremities from shrapnel from either the bombs themselves or from trash cans or other metal objects that were obliterated by the cowards who attacked innocent bystanders to whatever their grievances or malice was aimed at.

There is horror here at so many levels as our world declares with ever increasing frequency and brutality that it is in desperate need of the Prince of Peace.

The people responsible  are cowards, striking at innocents and hiding in the shadows.

The men and women of Boston have shown and will continue to show great courage in the midst of the perpetrators malevolence. 

Let the family of God rise up in Boston and around the world and recommit ourselves to serving our neighbors and proclaiming to our world the forgiveness of Christ and the glory of our King who promises to give his peace to all those who bow their knee to him.

John 14:27 (ESV)

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.
Not as the world gives do I give to you.
Let not your hearts be troubled,
neither let them be afraid.”
