Amidst the cares and concerns for family, friends, and community life, it's healthy to get an outside view that helps me put my life into perspective.
Today's inspiration is a pastor by the name of Andrew White, author of Faith under Fire. His church is a world away from my world, so to speak. His cares and concerns are nothing like mine. In the new July 2011 print issue of Christianity Today, in an interview with Joe Carter, White discusses his tumultuous life. Not only does White struggle with multiple sclerosis, but his parishioners keep getting murdered, tortured, and kidnapped.
Despite the seemingly hopeless circumstances, White continues in his ministry to the people of Baghdad, knowing that our Almighty God is more powerful than evil forces that surround him. Andrew White has a radical faith!
