November reflections

Remember all the people who live in far off lands may not be sung these days as we better understand our world and the people in it, but in this month of remembering let's spare a thought for the saints of God in the present age. Many maintain the faith in difficult circumstances without the tools we take for granted. There are still people who do not have the Bible in their native tongue, places where one Bible is passed around the whole community, each family taking a turn to hold God's word in their hands. In rural China, one woman tells of how she waited 80 years to have a Bible of her own, each time it was her turn with the village Bible she copied out a few more verses to sustain her. We have much to learn from those distant people in every foreign place who understand His kingdom and have come into His grace. DL
