New York, NY – October 28, 2018
The World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) expresses its sorrow over the tragic event in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where a gunman killed eleven worshippers in a Synagogue. Bp Efraim Tendero, Secretary General & CEO of WEA, issued the following statement:
We are deeply troubled by what has happened at the Tree of Life Synagogue this weekend and offer our heartfelt prayers of compassion and support for the families of those killed, for the local congregation and the Jewish community as a whole.
We call on believers around the world to specifically pray:
We are concerned about the increasingly polarized and hate-filled culture in many nations and regions of the world that not only marginalizes minorities but goes as far as encouraging violence against those they perceive to be different from themselves.
We believe that while we may at times disagree with people on matters of faith, opinion or tradition, every person is created by God and has inherent dignity that deserves respect.
Jesus called us to be peacemakers and in this spirit, we call on people of faith and any person of goodwill to not remain silent but speak out in opposition wherever and whenever hatred or violence is encouraged.

Picture this. A warm summers afternoon, sitting with a bunch of mates at the Music Box (a stage on the back of a truck) sipping on freshly squeezed OJ, listening to Strahan woo you with his silky tones. Imagine lining up with a plate, a knife and a fork, the smell of Argentinian style BBQ wafting past your nose, when a heap of fresh produce is lumped onto your plate, followed up by a nice thick cut of export quality beef. Imagine sitting in the One Arena surrounded by thousands of people, listening to some of the best theologians the...
