I remember the ruling on January 22, 1973, by the Supreme Court that was just as wrong-headed and ungodly. On that day the Supreme Court, according to Dr. John and Barbara Willke in their book, Abortion Questions and Answers, also ruled, "That unborn humans were not legal 'persons' according to the U. S. Constitution." Black people, thank God, have received their freedom and full rights.
The tragedy in Haiti has captured the bulk of the media's attention. But there is a growing trend of Christian persecution in Africa that has been receiving coverage. This week, clashes between Muslims and Christians in the central Nigerian city of Jos have killed more than 400 people and injured 4,000 more, according to Bloomberg.com.
People around the world have been shocked by the images of suffering coming from the nation of Haiti. Reports of the devasation are flooding in from people on the scene. My friend and former pastor, Rev. John Bowers of Grace Fellowship Church in Erie, Pennsylvania, was a missionary in Haiti in the 1980s. He has been receiving reports from his contacts in Haiti and shares his perspective here.

And Pastor Chuck Smith, senior pastor of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, California, and the father of the "Jesus People" phenomenon in Southern California, is continuing to recover in a local hospital after suffering two "mini-strokes" at his home recently.
