Night Lights

Standard

Our pastor is doing a series on the persecuted churches. It struck me how ignorant we can be of the freedom we take for granted. These are real people, suffering real crimes against humanity, simply by saying they believe in Jesus, and by those few words by association then, denouncing their dictatorship countries. Their stories are astounding. I recommend Voice of the Martyrs to learn more about them, or you can check out our church site to learn of books Pastor Jim Lyon recommends that we all should read. Understanding what is going on around us it imperative. It is time we learned. It is an uncomfortable feeling no doubt, to prepare to know painful things, I just wonder how much more so for they? http://www.madisonparkchurch.org/
