Perspectives...


I've been dealing with the squirrels in my attic over the past couple days, and today called the apartment maintenance people to set a trap (when that will happen they didn't say), I was surfing the web during lunch and was reminded of an online petition that I had signed (my sis brought it to my attention) about the 4 members of a peacemaker group that were kidnapped in Iraq in late November. It struck me that I have not heard any more mentioned about them in the news (not a good sign.) I checked their official website for an update and according to their site the kidnappers gave a new deadline of Dec 10th, and as of today Dec 28th, there has been no further information. I hope these guys are doing ok, and my thoughts and prayers go out to them, their friends and families, and to the kidnappers. Check out their website for the full story:

As I deal with annoyances and problems in my everyday life I'm reminded to try to keep things in perspective.

Thanks for this, Brother. I signed up for a Google News alert on 'christian peacemaker team" to get whatever news there is as it comes out. Just today I was reflecting on the sad fact that none of the news articles are coming from the U.S. That is a sin, in my view. Thanks for keeping this in folks' minds. (And for signing the petition!)

It is simply baffling that the US media has so little interest in the CPT. I keep praying for good news. Have you visited Tom Fox's blog, www.waitinginthelight.blogspot.com? His writing is really moving, and tragically prophetic.
