Are You Frazzled? 4/25/17

Are You Frazzled? I awoke this morning with a list of about 10 things to do and immediately I felt frazzled and overwhelmed. Frazzled in the Cambridge Dictionary means:  extremely tired in a nervous or slightly worried way after a lot of mental or physical effort.  I knew my list was longer than I could … Read more

Christian Persecution in the World

While reading a magazine named “Voice of Martyrs”, I was really touched by the story about Christian persecution in the world, in the March edition. The article was about Pastor Han Chung-Ryeol and his wife, Mrs. Han. Called to Changbai, China shortly after the Pastor had graduated from seminary, they arrived as a result of being led by God. The missionary couple was to minister and help Chinese people in this poor area and give the Gospel message so that this message could be spread further throughout the region. They did not expect that North Korean men and women would also sneak across the border for their message and for ministry.

Where Is The America I Knew as a Child?

 

Where Is The America I Knew as a Child? I grew up learning about America’s inclusiveness. It was taught in every class and attitude of the teachers (which to me as a child in America was the “world” view of America). We were founded on immigrants that came to America to seek freedom and their dreams of fortune and education. Where Is The Inclusionism That Founded America? It is even engraved on the tablet beside the Statue of Liberty. The engraving was from a poem by Emma Lazarus.

    The New Colossus

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,

With conquering limbs astride from land to land;

Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand

A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame

Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name

Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand

Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command

The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.

“Keep ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries she

With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
