At the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013, two bombs exploded, killing three people and injuring 183. Our feelings of security were once again shattered by images of violence and destruction; death has dominated the news. In a timely article, Kyle Rohane reflects on the celebration of death and human mortality.

One Boston pastor, touched by the bombings, reflects on the image of God in humanity. Another asks if our churches are prepared to respond to tragedy with faith, hope, and love.

Mel Lawrenz reminds us not to allow treacherous evil to make us feel like victims.

As news surfaced that the bombers were potentially Muslim, reports of retributive attacks have surfaced. Emily C. Heath urges everyone to keep these bombings from propagating more hatred, asking us to Stand Up Against Anti-Muslim Hatred.
