musings about the emerging church, mission and contemporary culture...

God is at large, intimately involved in his world in ways that the church is maybe just waking up to!

troubled Pakistan...

Friday, August 03, 2007

Regular readers of this blog will know about my connection with Pakistan (click on the 'Pakistan' link below to see my other posts). These are worrying times for that country, with indications suggesting a possible slide into civil war between the military government and the religious conservatives. Caught up in the middle of this are minority communities, such as the Christian community, and progressives who want to see the country live up to its founding principles of freedom and harmony.

Recently, we had some friends staying with us from Peshawar in the North-West Frontier (near the Afghan border), which has seen more than its fair share of trouble and unrest in recent months. They urged us to keep praying for their country.

If you're interested in finding out more about this troubled country, yesterdays Guardian newspaper carried a two page article which summarises the situation well. It can be read online 'here', and a catalogue of recent Guardian articles about Pakistan can be found 'here'.
