Thank you for making the outcry of the Christians in Northern
Nigeria your cover story.
Thank you, CT, for sharing this. This is the news (even when it’s difficult) we need to be hearing more of. Stuff that is actually affecting the Christian church globally.
I’m thankful for journalists like @jeremywebr who take me to places I’ve never been through their reporting and writing.
The church must wake up to the persecution and suffering of our brothers and sisters. All Christians there are suffering and we must stand with them.
Thank you for the article. What does ministry partnership mean on both sides of the financial transaction—this must be taught and learnt well so that we can be good stewards of the mission that is entrusted to us.
Reading Jen Wilkin’s excellent piece on the value of women-only forums in the church brought back to my mind the emergence of Promise Keepers some years ago with its big stadium venues and small groups spin-offs. In those men-only settings, I was amazed at the sight of men (yours truly included) openly crying and sharing in ways I’d never seen and couldn’t imagine in mixed-gender environments. Ever since I have been convinced all-male spaces nurture men in ways mixed spaces don’t and as such should be encouraged and facilitated in the church.
Thanks, Jen, for writing this. Hot topic in our leadership team at the moment. The activities chosen for our same-sex groups confuse me—why do men have a theological study group and women have pampering evenings with a testimony? Both valuable, but why segregated by gender?1
