A small group of men got together to pray tonight. A sales manager for shirt company, an airforce man, a businessman dealing with printing materials - and myself. Four brothers in Christ. One hour - minimal talk - maximum prayer.
And how we need to pray - initial reports are just coming in about shooting and perhaps even a bomb at two of the city's upmarket hotels. We have been preparing for Philip Yancey's meeting tomorrow evening for months and the last thing we need is a terrorist attack - and the almost inevitable all out 'shut down' of the city.
Yancey's talk is to be on "Injustice and Reconciliation" and will also feature a short film about the situation in Orissa along with analysis by Brother
We certainly need reconciliation more than ever. Pray!
