Anglican Primate Calls for Unity to Defeat Terrorist Threat

From Kenya-

The Most Revd Dr Eliud Wabukala, Primate of the Anglican Church of Kenya, issued the following pastoral letter for Good Friday following the al-Shabaab attack at Garrissa University, Kenya, that killed 148 people, mostly Christians.

My dear Brothers and Sisters,

On this Good Friday we gather in our churches across Kenya in the shadow of a great and terrible evil. People who deal in death have slaughtered 148 people in Garissa, most of them students, and brought wrenching anguish to their families and a deep sadness to our nation.

These young people died because they were Kenyans and they were Christians. This attack was a calculated manifestation of evil designed to destroy our nation and our faith, but on this Good Friday we are reminded that the very worst evil can do is not the last word.
