As We Blithely Go Our Way

American prosperity teachers tell us we can have health, wealth, and wonderful self esteem. They are a travesty to the Body of Christ. Meanwhile this is what happened in Turkey recently to Christians. Maybe you have already read the news reports. It was hard to take it in at the time because the situation at Virginia Tech had just happened. Plus, news reports left out quite a bit. Please pray for the families involved in this tragedy, and ask that God be glorified in the midst of it all. Letter from the Church at Smyrna

We are so sheltered in our little parts of the world. It's so easy to forget that people are persecuted for being Christians when we take our freedom for granted.

But you know the worst thing: I often receive newsletter like the one you link to speaking of the persecution Christians throughout the world are going through and I feel so helpless I often don't even read them. I'm a part of the apathy problem.

Sighing, groaning and praying.
