We are heartbroken by the senseless and cowardly attacks in Sri Lanka on Sunday, April 21. These bombings were a heinous act of hate against the country’s minority Christian community as they observed one of their holiest days. We extend our deepest condolences to the families of the victims and to all who are grieving; we reaffirm our solidarity and support for the people of Sri Lanka, our Christian friends around the world, and for all people who seek to worship freely.
We pray for peace, for an end to violent hatred, for the comfort of those who are suffering, and for the swift healing of the injured. Together, our faith communities will remain strong in the face of those who seek to tear us apart.
