What’s the message through the mess?

You’ve heard the headlines. The Obama administration is caught in scandal after scandal. Persecution against Christians in Eritrea is at an all-time high. Human trafficking is up 18 percent in Europe. The Oklahoma City tornado kills school children. Syria continues in civil war. Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood continues identifying Christians for violence.

I’m still trying to figure that out. Stay tuned.
