Berlin Attack

A message from Bishop Rosemarie Wenner, of the Evangelisch-methodistische Kirche in Germany, following the attack on Berlin 19 Dec 2016.

An extract from the letter reads:

"Right in the face of the manifestations of horror - whether because of terror in Berlin and elsewhere or because of war and war crimes in Syria and other neglected places -, we set our hope in Jesus Christ. In his name we try not to act on our human reflex movements, as understandable they might be. We do not cry out for revenge, nor are we generally suspicious towards certain groups of people, nor do we wish to get rid of the strangers. Those who trust the child in the manger will be comforted despite of fear and helplessness and will receive and  give love."
