Sunday's Comin'

by Safiyah Fosua
I am writing this blog post in the shadow of the bombings at the Boston Marathon today. I had planned to write a different blog post but I am forced by circumstances to ask the question: will we have forgotten the tremendous horror and suffering of our neighbors in the East by the time that Sunday worship comes? By this, I mean will the bombings receive more than a sentence of the pastoral prayer as we rush to the happy clappy music that we have grown to love or will we sit in the ashes with them to grieve and pray – even for just a little while?
