Bishop Jung Denounces Acts of Violence in Sri Lanka

Terrorism in all its forms and functions is unacceptable and indefensible.  The bombings on Easter Sunday in Sri Lanka are heinous acts of cowardice and terrorism.  I call upon all my Christian brothers and sisters to join in mourning and prayer for the victims and their families.  Additionally, I call upon our Wisconsin Conference to become a witness for peace, refusing to condone violence in any form, and seeking in all ways to extend love, grace, forgiveness, and merciful justice throughout our world.  This is a heartbreaking and senseless tragedy for Easter Sunday, but we are a people of resurrection and new life.  May we pray God’s Spirit be with the people of Sri Lanka.
