Close to Garissa Tragedy

We just checked into a motel in Kilifi, near the Indian Ocean, which is about five hours from Garissa. I was distressed to learn that 147 students have been killed today in an attack by al-Shabab militants on Garissa University in north-eastern Kenya.

I asked myself the question: “How does one carrying Christ’s love respond to such a situation. Someone has said, “In order to make a difference we need to be different.”

And Christ called us to be different. He said, “Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good and sends rain on the just and the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? Matt. 5: 43-46.

But what does that look like in this situation? I am still listening for His voice?Cl
