Sri Lanka Rally Seeks Unity Among Religious Groups
June 29th, 2011
An inter-denominational rally designed to bring the nation’s Christians closer together was held in Colombo recently.
The JHU, a conservative, predominantly Buddhist political group, is shepherding an anti-conversion bill through the Sri Lanka parliament that many Christians fear will seriously interfere with their charity work.
Thousand of believers, including Catholics, Anglicans, Methodists, Baptists, Presbyterians, members of the Ceylon Reformed Church and evangelical groups, joined in worship and song at the city’s main Anglican church, the Cathedral of Christ the Living Savior, on June 25.
