And they none were without sin…..

A young girl of just 13 years of age was brutally raped, then she was put in a hole, buried up to her neck and stoned to death by more than 50 men.  More than 1,000 people stood by and watched. I’m not talking about something that happened 2,000 years ago. This happened last week. Source

Am I alone in wanting to see the Lord descend from the skies on a cloud sometime soon…Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayers!

    After last night’s election, I feel a deep and profound sadness. Reading this made it even worse. I understand Jesus crying out on the cross “Why have you abandoned me?” But,as a saintly friend of mine reminded me, even Pilate had a critical part in God’s plan. It feels like we are stuck at the foot of the cross…in sorrow…but we know through faith that He will rise again. I pray He comes soon.

    Golly, it doesn’t bear thinking about, does it? It’s like some horrible kafka-esque nightmare.

    Deb I have awarded you.

    My Muslim taxi driver t’other day made it quite clear what he thinks of ‘white’ culture. I wonder if he looks at his own people with equal disgust.

    June, thanks so much for leaving such an insightful comment. It does often feel like we are superglued to the foot of the cross, bent over with sorrow and living in the shadows. It’s important to remember that we can hold on to the cross to help ourselves up again.

    Libbie, absolutely. Terrible shame.
