General Cox Responds to Paris Attacks

Following Friday evening’s terrorist attacks in Paris, The Salvation Army’s world leader General André Cox has written these words to Salvationists and friends. One of the most forceful statements comes at the 2:49 mark:

“There will possibly be strong voices within the public sphere calling for vengeful retribution against those who had nothing to do with these atrocities. In some small way the voice of the Church, of you and I, can call for added grace and care in these days. We can bring light into the gloom.”

In keeping with the prayers we offer at Prayer & Praise Night as a body, let us pray “Lord have mercy. Christ have mercy.”
