Odyssey Networks: Working for a Nonviolent World after Boston

April 16, 2013

Two bombs exploded during the Boston Marathon, killing at least two and injuring hundreds. #PrayingforBoston quickly became the leading trending topic on Twitter Monday as Americans everywhere offered thoughts and prayers for those impacted.

"Times of tragedy are opportunities for us in the faith community to express our love and also work for nonviolent love in the world," said the Rev. Peter Hetzel, director of the Micah Institute at New York Theological Seminary, who ran the Boston Marathon in 1995.

"We will see this as an opportunity not to get bogged down in tragedy once again in our nation but see how can we transfigure this tragedy into a way to work for hope, a way to work for love and a way to work for God's shalom in our world."
