Amy Welborn blogs on this important story: the flaring up of violence between Muslims and Christians in Nigeria.

Especially in Jos, a university town. I feel a personal connection with Jos because my sister turned 20 in Jos while showing the Jesus film with Campus Crusade.

The Anglican diocesan website is chilling to read.

The headline reads "Jos goes up in flames. And beneath that is a depressingly detailed list of the damage and
deaths experienced by the Christian community.. Deaths, persons injured, churched destroyed, homes destroyed, livestock lost (2500 hens) and all by parish.

The Catholic Archdiocese has listed its losses here.

Those of us privileged to live in peace must hold our suffering brothers and sisters up in prayer.
