“Our prayers go out to the many families and individuals affected by the bombings during this year’s Boston Marathon. Massive violence against innocent people goes contrary to the will of God and the civility of human existence. I do believe in prayer and support for families affected and call upon all the churches in the New Mexico and Northwest Texas Conferences of The United Methodist Church to pray for the families affected, police and fire department workers, businesses and last but not least please pray for peace in our land. Leslie and I are on the road visiting churches and people; however we join with all of you in prayer and solidarity. May the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of the body of Christ we have been called to peace.”
