Sri Lankan Christian churches attacked - on Easter, no less!

Just when most of the Christian world is celebrating the Resurrection of Our Lord and Savior, far too many families in Sri Lanka are mourning their loved ones, dead at the hands of Islamists.

Not something we expect waking up to.




CNN has the horrifying details.

Oh, and it looks like PF has something to say, too. Good.

This is sadly the biggest untold story of our times: the persecution, suffering and death of our brothers and sisters in the faith. It’s a narrative that isn’t politically correct. It’s not just churches that are being attacked and vandalized but the very living Body of Christ. Let’s pray this Easter Sunday for those who put their daily lives in danger for saying yes to Christ.
