This week’s terror attack in Nairobi has “left behind a trail of pain and untold suffering among innocent and hardworking citizens”, the Anglican Church of Kenya said in a statement. At least 21 people are known to have been killed after militants from al-Shabaab, a Somalia-based al Qaeda affiliate, attacked the DusitD2 hotel and business complex in Nairobi on Tuesday. A further 19 people are still unaccounted for. The terror group claimed responsibility for the attack, saying it was in response to US President Donald Trump’s decision to move the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

Benny Hazlehurst was raised in a liberal High Anglican famil, but came to evangelical faith in his teens. He trained at Trinity College Bristol, before ordination, and a serious of encounters with gay Christians led him to change his view on the Church’s teaching on same-sex relationships, out of which he founded Accepting Evangelicals . Our paths crossed at various times during our ministries, and I invited him to contribute to one of the study days discussing sexuality that I organised at St John’s, Nottingham. I remember him as a person of remarkable energy and passion, and was deeply moved to read the last article he wrote on his blog as he knew he was facing imminent death from cancer. He died on Boxing Day, and his funeral is to be held on 17 January. I repost his article with permission from his widow Mel; do pray for her and their children.
