After a missions meeting this morning, I am heading out to the KY State Fair with the family. However, even as we enjoy seeing jugglers and giant pumpkins, our brothers and sisters around the world are facing harsh conditions.
As I have written about before, the so-called Arab Spring is actually a winter disaster for Christians in Egypt. I just read this story which tells of those opposing the Muslim Brotherhood being crucified naked on a tree. Obviously, that is the most heinous way to die.
But might it not also be symbolic of someone else’s death? And did that Man not bring about redemption when he was hanged naked on the tree?
