One week ago, terrorists attacked several targets in Paris, France and 129 people were left dead. The attacks were designed to strike fear, confusion and division in the hearts of people of the Free World...some believe it is working. #prayforparis and Eiffel Towers backed by peace signs became the message to shout from our social media pulpits. Then the inevitable push back came..."thanks for praying", said one Charlie Hebdo cartoonist — "but we don't need more religion, Paris is about life!" The Dalai Lama weighed in — "Don't pray for Paris, work for peace instead. Humans have created this problem, and now we are asking God to solve it. It is illogical. God would say, solve it yourself because you created it in the first place.” Our good friends and fellow GWs, Peter​ and Pat were about 300m from one of the attack sites...in this latest edition of the Here & There Podcast we asked them what they believe will come of this tragedy in their home city of Paris. Listen in while they speak of their renewed passion for the city and how they plan to help restore courage and bring hope to the people in their arrondissement. #prayforpeterandpat
