Alex Beck and his fiance Lynn...what a beatiful couple. Alex died of morphans syndrome at 28. I look forward to seeing him on the other side and renewing our brotherhood. He left us 32 years ago. Lynn has never remarried, but has lead a great life of service and education.
I am reading Os Guisness next to last book entitled, The Case for Civility. He is arguing that Americans, and American Christians can show the world how we can co exist and stop the violence that has plagued our modern world. He reminded me of the word Pandemoniam, coined by Dante in his Inferno, the place where the devil and his demons rule.As I watched some of the private footage of the Twin Tower collapse and watched so many people running for their lives and trying to get off the island, that is the word that struck me. It looked like Pandemoniam.
May God help us to see the people of the world through the eyes of Christ.
