A Sri Lankan Christian Responds to the Easter Bombings

Ajith Fernando

Like most others I was appalled when I heard about the  bombings of churches and hotels in Sri Lanka.  It is difficult to quantify cruelty, but the hundreds killed seem to make it harder to even know how to respond. 

At least one Sri Lankan Christian has taken the time to do so.  I can’t do any better than share what Ajith Fernando said.  His thoroughly biblical response illustrate why he is deservedly among the most respected Christians anywhere.  Read what he had to say on the website of Christianity Today.

  • The Book of Acts

    Pentecost or Shavuoth was a Holiday of Harvest. It signified the end of Israel’s harvest season.  Spiritually, at this point, Israel’s harvest season is coming to an end and the Church is being born.

The Skill of Facing Frustration

This little tidbit from struck me as amazingly, seriously and sort of humorously on target:

The weakness that many Christians encounter today is that of frustration.  While the modern emphasis on efficiency has produced quick ways to do many things, there is no shortcut to effective evangelism.  This may be the single biggest challenge that Western missionaries will face in the twenty-first century.  They are not skilled at facing frustration, but if they are to be effective missionaries they will have to master that skill.
