At the moment I am reading an interesting and inspirational book. It is called Faith under Fire, written by Andrew White (the vicar of Baghdad).
Apart from my own books and books by fellow bloggers, I hardly ever recommend or review books on this blog (simply because by doing so, people will try to put me in a box). But books about the world wide (persecuted) church really have a place in my heart. They ALWAYS teach me important life lessons. At some point Andrew White writes:
"Despite the fact that St. George's is constantly under fire, it is the happiest church I have ever served in..."
That one sentence jumped off the page and I thought: wow... It puts things in perspective, doesn't it?
Father, forgive us for being spoiled...
