Do you remember the town of Joplin in Missouri which was devastated by a tornado last year? Do you remember the amazing stories of a community coming together to help each other? Well this week the news from this same town is not so good. The Joplin mosque has been destroyed by fire; the fire department are saying due to an arson attack.
What has changed in this town over the last year? Where have the community spirit and friendships go e? It's a sad time for everyone in that small town.
And so I pray for the people of Joplin of all faith and none; for peace and tolerance and love. Let us pray the same for all communities around the world. God calls for peace; let's live that out together.
