I'm fasting with my Jewish friends and family today in celebration of the day of Atonement. How can a fast be a celebration? It can and is a celebration. The Pope, yesterday, in London, spoke of Chrstians being marginalised in the world. I pray for my Christian brethren in countries where being a Christian is dangerous.
The picture shows Muslim women in China. While China has done much to help their Muslim minorities, true Christian believers has to hide their faith and worship in house churches. I know of American pastors who has been barred from ever entering China and has had their house churches in China confiscated.
