Two Things

Two things about violence, and its place in our culture. Few of the prominent spokespersons among Evangelicals seem to want to speak of it. But listen first to Gary Haugen of International Justice Mission:

Then, from a preacher and author who is quickly becoming one of my favorites, Read Brian Zahnd on the recent massacre in Charlerston, SC. Note also his quoting of the Pope's recent encyclical:
The violence present in our hearts, wounded by sin, is also reflected in the symptoms of sickness evident in the soil, in the water, in the air and in all forms of life.
We need reminding of this, it seems.
