To people of the Muslim Faith in Canberra

 

As we recoil from the horror of the massacre of people at prayer in two mosques in Christchurch last Friday, and the continuing media focus on the details of that day, we want to assure you of our love and prayers for you, our dear friends, together, all children of a compassionate, merciful and loving God.

We grieve with you in the loss of lives, people of all ages; for their loved ones, families broken apart, their unfulfilled hopes and the tears that flow.

May they know God’s peace and presence in the days ahead as they seek to rebuild their lives and find solace in their life together.

Not only for these days, but for the future of our nation, as representatives of the churches of the ACT, we pledge ourselves to work together with all, whatever our faith, culture or race, to grow a nation free of prejudice and fear; a people that refuses to be divided; a nation that cares for others even as we care for ourselves.

Grace and peace,

Rev Alistair Christie
