The World Methodist Council Condems Attack On Charlie Hebdo

The World Methodist Council strongly condemns the attack on the offices of the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo in Paris on Wednesday.

In a statement General Secretary Ivan Abrahams said:

“Two days after the attack on the offices of Charlie Hebdo and the world remains in shock of the senseless and wanton violence that occurred.

This violence serves as an affront to freedom, human rights and the security of all people . The World Methodist Council is strongly opposed any form of violence and the use religion to justify it. During this time of soul-searching and grief, I ask that we pray for those injured as well as for the families of those senselessly gunned down.

Furthermore, I ask that we make a fresh commitment to work for the realization of just peace in 2015. ”

Let’s give Peace a chance!

With many PEACEFUL blessings

Geoffrey
