With news just breaking of a young man charged with 4 murders and 1 attempted murder in London when he allegedly drove his truck at a high rate of speed into a Muslim family which he deliberately targeted, We are calling for all of us stand with our neighbours no matter their colour, creed, sexual orientation or country of origin. There is no place for hate in our community. We extend our deepest condolences to the friends and family of those murdered and to the entire Muslim community in London and across Canada. We also pray for the 9-year-old boy recovering in hospital as he comes to terms with the loss of his entire family. We urge everyone to call out hatred whenever and wherever we see it.
"'Teacher, which commandment in the law is the greatest?' He said to him, 'You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the greatest and first commandment. And a second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself.’ Matthew 22:36-39
