I received the following cryptic e-mail from Canon Andrew White, the Anglican Vicar of Baghdad, this morning:
"I wrote earlier about our conference "Light in Darkness". Today has been such a day. We woke to the wonderful news of the imminent release of Gilad Shalit. We shared the great news that we wanted the conference for youth and adults. then the darkness began. Bomb after bomb. Shuddered but not hurt. We do not know how many have been killed but we know the light of the Lord is still here. And there are never any bombs where the conference will be."
Please pray for Baghdad and particularly the Christian community there. It must be particularly bad this morning because Canon White usually does not send messages like that.
