WAR-RAVAGED YEMENI CHILDREN WILL SUFFER FROM HUNGER FOR 20 YEARS
05 DECEMBER 2019 (SOURCE: INDEPENDENT) – Even if the five-year war in Yemen were to end today, it would take two decades for the impoverished country’s children to reach the lesser level of malnutrition they suffered before the conflict, according to a new report to be released on Tuesday by a charity organisation. Without an immediate ceasefire, the war could cost the international community an additional $29bn (£22bn) in resources, according to the International Rescue Committee’s report The War Destroyed Our Dreams. “Yemen is now home to the largest food insecure population in the world,” says the 20-page report.
CHURCHES BURNED AND CHRISTIANS TARGETED IN INDIA?
THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE IS CIRCULATING ON SOCIAL MEDIA:
“Brothers and sisters, urgent prayer request. Pray for the Church in India. Buddhist extremists in India burned down 20 churches last night. Tonight want to destroy more than 200 churches in Olisabang province. They want to kill 200 missionaries within the next 24 hours. All Christians are hiding in villages… Pray for them and send this message to all Christians you know.
"DEMONIC" ARTWORK IN SCHOOLS: A CHRISTIAN RESPONSE
25 OCTOBER 2019 – A video was posted on social media by a parent about “satanic” artwork displayed by a grade 12 pupil at a school in South Africa. The video provides very little context and none of the clarification which the pupil had posted with each piece of art. The video went viral, igniting anger and demanding action. Such incidents raise the question, “How should Christians respond to such incidents and to highly emotive social media posts?” Is it of any use to send it to as many people as possible and ignite a ‘holy anger’ in the hearts of the recipients or should there be a different response? FIVE things to consider before you respond.
