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!

it keeps getting worse...

there have been so many bomb blasts in Pakistan in recent months that I have not blogged about them for fear of repetition, even though I have been praying for friends in that troubled country. But today's blast in Peshawar, which has killed over 90 people, can't pass by without comment.

I continue to pray for the people whose lives have literally been torn apart by this and other atrocities; and also for those who are planning future such acts of violence - that they would be moved by God's love and compassion to reconsider and seek peaceful means of promoting their cause. For surely no god worth worshipping could approve of such indiscriminate slaughter in their name.
