The news about the Hamas incursion into Israel is devastating. The nature of the attack and the taking of hostages – even women and children – is a serious violation not only of international law but, even more importantly, of the moral law that is written in the conscience of every human being. Such an attack must be unequivocally condemned, and our voices raised to the LORD that respect for human life, created in His image, will prevail among all people of good will. I join my prayers to those of the Jewish community who are mourning the deceased.
