WESTGATE (21-24/9/13)

Sadly Kenya has been given the attention of the world in these last days. If you have been paying attention to the media then you know as much as we do about this awful incident. As regards ourselves and the church no one has been directly involved in the incident. Westgate is the other side of Nairobi from where we are located. But it is on everyone’s mind and the constant talk, and it has brought people together, as such a tragedy always does. As it came to an end, I addressed it in my preaching last Sunday, Lessons from Westgate. Most obviously we learn that men and women are capable of both great acts of wickedness and also of mercy; but then the unpreparedness for such acts that bring sudden death must turn our eyes to what Jesus said when talking about tragedies in Luke 13:1-5. Please pray for us all and that God, in His inscrutable wisdom, will bring good out of this
