Since my last post the situation in the “Arab World” has been both volatile and violent. Yesterday (3/11) an earthquake and resultant tsunami caused wide spread death and destruction. The search for survivors, their rescue, will rightly hold our attention for days. The clean up and rebuilding will span years. As much as the media swings a spotlight from one area to another focusing our attention now here, now there, I will attempt to keep a focus on Sudan (introduced with the Presiding Bishop’s call to prayer, study, and action in November 2010).
The information maintained and shared by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is my main resource. I commend it to you. In early February “The New Sudan – Challenges and Opportunities” explored in Q $ A format the days to come in Sudan. The post contains links to additional sites for information.
With all that is happening around us today, with the great need that demands our attention, I ask respectfully that you find your passion and pursue it “with gladness and singleness of heart” for the welfare of all.
