Kenya violence

OpenDoors reports that at least 18 people died, while 66 were wounded, in the north eastern town of Garissa in Kenya on Sunday 1 July. Assailants wearing balaclavas simultaneously burst into the Africa Inland Church (AIC) and Lady of Consolata Catholic Church, shooting at worshippers and detonating grenades. Two policemen guarding the AIC were among those killed – four of the injured remain in critical condition in Nairobi hospitals. For story click here.

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?” Romans 8:35

Action: Open Doors asks that you pray for the Lords comfort for the bereaved and injured and for the OpenDoors workers in the country as they investigate the attacks and determine a response.

Christianity deserts West

Christians make up about the same portion of the world’s population today (32%) as they did a century ago (35%), according to a report by Pew Research Center. Pew Research Center says: “This apparent stability, however, masks a momentous shift. Although Europe and the Americas still are home to a majority of the world’s Christians (63%), that share is much lower than it was in 1910 (93%). And the proportion of Europeans and Americans who are Christian has dropped from 95% in 1910 to 76% in 2010 in Europe as a whole, and from 96% to 86% in the Americas as a whole. At the same time, Christianity has grown enormously in subSaharan Africa and the Asia-Pacific region, where there were relatively few Christians at the beginning of the 20th century.”

The report says about 50% of the christians are Catholic while 37% are Protesant.
