    from Don Cummings Added 23 0 0

    Ukraine, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Syria, ISIS all indicate a world in turmoil wracked by new spasms of violence. How should the Christian community respond to such upheaval? This message offers three ways: first and foremost, compassion; second deep intercessory prayer asking God to intervene in our human folly; third a consistent witness to the world that there is an alternative to the kingdoms of this world--the Kingdom of God that was taught and lived in by Jesus.

            Theologian and biblical scholar John Dominic Crossan gave a series of lectures on Jesus and Paul at the Earlham School of Religion. Trying to put together images with a series of theological ideas was challenging. I was asked to cover the event, but in this case the event is not so much the people who gathered as the words they heard. I'm not sure if the visual information here actually adds to the audio—or, how to increase the value of the visual information.
