Heart4Harlow: Our hearts and prayers go out to the people of Afghanistan

Communities / Tue 24th Aug 2021 am31 07:15am

OUR hearts and prayers go out to the people of Afghanistan as they face fear, uncertainty and for many the loss of possessions and home  We stand alongside those who are experiencing loss and trauma, with families in our own town who remember what it is like to be bombed out of their own homes. As Harlow was built for the families of those displaced or left in squalid housing after the Second World War so we look forward to helping those in need now, fleeing in fear for their lives.

Many of the stories in the Bible, deal with those fleeing persecution or in need of both physical or spiritual rehoming, and we are mindful of the fact that Jesus himself, in infancy, was a refugee. We therefore, as local Christians, look forward to being part of the answer to the prayers of the Afghan people.

In these times when so much that we rely on seems under threat: our physical health, our mental health, our environment, and world peace, we reaffirm our trust in God. We give thanks that beyond life as we know it there is an eternal kingdom, for which we pray, as Jesus taught us: “Thy kingdom come”.
