Standing for the Suffering Church: Vigil for Persecuted Christians in the Middle East

Please let us show Christians and other religious minorities who are targeted by ISIS that brothers and sisters in the West, and in this case, right in the American nation’s capital, are standing with them and the honoring their faith.


Sudan and 9/11: The End of Illusions

September 14, 2015

Every success in U.S. Sudan policy has happened in spite of the absurdity of negotiating with a regime that operates through denials and deception. Failure – to stop genocide in Darfur, Nuba Mountains, and Blue Nile, and to speak out for the Beja and the Nubian civilization have occurred because the regime has never been held accountable for violating decades of agreements.

Remembering a Victim of Terror

On the mirror of her bedroom dresser, Angie kept a Bible verse that reflected the significance of her highest level security work at the Pentagon, monitoring the ongoing geopolitical and military movements that could be a threat to American forces.

Everything You Know is About to Change: Why I Will Never Forget 9/11

September 11, 2015

You may think this is a stretch, but that scene reminds me of the bright, sunny Tuesday morning of September 11, 2001. Although most of us didn’t realize it, we, America, the West, were already engaged in a life-and-death struggle against evil forces that had taken control.

If nothing else, 9/11 taught us that no one can prevent or escape the storms. But Jesus taught us that those who anchor on the rock of His word rather than the sands of this world will not be lost.

June 19, 2015

The plight of Christians and other religious minorities being persecuted by violence has touched people around the globe, and particularly brought conviction to fellow Christians who feel helpless in the face of such evil.

Snookered by Sudan (When Being Innocent as a Dove is Not Enough)

June 8, 2015

The sad truth is that statements that create doubt about Sudan’s persecution and genocide – and about the regime that perpetrates it – give the U.S. government and the world community one more excuse to not act to stop it.

Four Years of Madness

June 5, 2015

Four years ago today, the Government of Sudan began a war against the people of the Nuba Mountains that is still raging. It is madness to expect the regime to stop its genocidal jihad.

Pastors from South Sudan on Trial for Their Lives in Khartoum

There must be an outcry that signals to Khartoum that fellow Christians and other concerned citizens are aware of the egregious persecution of the Revs Yat Michael Ruot and Peter Yen Reith, considered Sudan’s “marginalized people” – marginalized for both their Christian faith and their African ethnicity.
