The Peshawar bombings: One year on...

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything." (James 1:2-4)

Today marks one year since the bombings that took place outside All Saints Church  in Peshawar, Pakistan. As we reflect on this unfortunate event we also remember those who lost relatives or friends and stand in empathy with them.

We thank God for the resilience of the Christian community in Peshawar, and continue to pray for peace, and ask that God may comfort those who are still hurting.
