Terror in France

Our thoughts and prayers are with France in the wake of the terrorist attacks that took place on Friday, 13 November. Our deepest condolences to the families who have lost their loved ones and we pray that God’s peace and comfort will be with them at this very difficult time.

The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; He knows those who take refuge in Him.

Nahum 1:7

Shall I tell you what the heart of Jesus is like?

He weeps with us. He weeps with those who mourn. His tears flow when He sees destruction impending. He cannot see anyone in anguish without Himself being in anguish too. Neither in heaven, nor on earth can a heart be found like His – so all embracing, so willing to suffer and die for love of friend and foe. All this and much more is what the heart of Jesus is like.

M. Basilea Schlink


“Lord Jesus, help us not to grow discouraged, to despair or lose confidence in You. Help us to trust in Your love always, even when we don’t understand You.”
