Sri Lanka bombings: Forgiving, and fighting to recover

Oct 21, 2019 by

From BBC:

Six months ago, on Easter Sunday, Sri Lanka was hit by one of the world’s worst terrorist attacks this century.

The town of Negombo suffered the deadliest bombing, when 115 people died while attending mass.

Hasaru Jayakody lost his mother in the explosion – and spent his 17th birthday recovering from shrapnel injuries in hospital. He is now learning to forgive and not to hate, and is volunteering as a Sunday School teacher.

This short video shows how ordinary Christians are taking the lead in reconciliation and witness.
