I’m glad David put this all in one post. It’s not something that I like to dwell on very long, although I understand that some good Christian folk meditate to a great extent on it.
For me the story is like the famine report in today’s news, the killings in Iraq and other places, even the afternoon traffic death report on the local news.
These are things I don’t allow myself to focus on; the world is dreary enough without my close attention. Not a Christian attitude perhaps, but, I believe, a very prevalent one among relgious people in general. A great man was cruelly murdered; so what else is new? At this point I join “the world”. Pray for me.
