Quebec Terrorist Attack Response
As our souls cry out in shock, grief, and outrage all rolled into one, we know that the Spirit intercedes with sighs too deep for words when words will simply not be enough. Today we hold up our Muslim siblings in prayer. We weep with those who are grieving, and lift prayers of lament with all those whose souls cry out this day. When far too many of our neighbours feel fear because of how they worship, we will not turn away. As people of faith, with hearts broken open we stand firm with our Muslim neighbours refusing to let hate have the last word.
Good faithful people were struck down by hate as they offered prayers to God. This affront to our neighbours, to our country, reminds us all of the need to recommit ourselves to reaching out to one another. To refuse to let hate and fear drive us apart. Instead we will resolve ourselves once more to offer love and compassion. To follow the call of our God to reach out to those around us. We stand in solidarity with our Muslim siblings. We will remain committed to building a world more compassionate, more open, and more loving. We will show our love and support in prayer and action. We will refuse to turn a blind eye to racism or Islamophobia. In all our communities, large and small, let us stand united in love. Let us continue to speak out against hate, to teach our children and youth the joy, love, and wonder found when we come together, learn from one another, and worship with each other.
In the face of fear, hate, and sorrow that cuts deep, let us raise our voices and hearts in love. For our God calls us to do no less. We have heard the ancient call, “love your neighbour as yourself.” And may the strength, courage, and peace of our Creator, Allah, our God, Source of us all, be with you this day and forever more.
