From a letter by United Methodist Bishop Sudarshana Devadhar of the New England Annual Conference:
“We are truly saddened by the news that just came regarding the explosions near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Along with you I grieve for those that lost their lives and their families, and for those injured in this tragic event. In moments like this, we do not know what to say or how to say it, but will you join me in the prayer of the psalmist, “God is our refuge and our strength, a very present help in times of trouble.” (Ps.46:1).
Let us also pray for all those involved in aiding the victims and those in law enforcement responding to this terrible event, as well as clergy of all faiths who are comforting victims and families. Even in the midst of such tragedies may we continue to strive for a world of peace and reconciliation, as followers of the risen Christ.”
Boston is in my prayers, please let it be in yours.
