I received a text message late last night from an Indian friend and I paste in below.
We have a few Indian families in our church and it has been great getting to know them and learning a bit about the culture they bring to us. As they are Christians it is even more interesting to me to see both our similarities and our differences.
Now that we have so many different nationalities in our church the world seems a lot smaller to me than it used to. That is why messages like this carry and extra horror. But Bangalore? We are now accustomed to speaking with people in call centres in Bangalore when telephoning about insurance, telephones or banking. I feel these horrors are happening so near to me.
