Voices of Martyrs

Do you think about what it means to be a martyr?

EVER? Well it is time to. No matter what your religious beliefs are.

You have a history of martyrs, I imagine. Buddhist martyrs are in Myanmar these days in the news.

These martyrs are in China. They are Christian.

"The eyes of the world will soon be on the
Olympics. But the eyes of God remain on His children and especially those who
suffer for their faith. Despite what you may hear in the news, Chinese
Christians who refuse to register with the government controlled church are
being persecuted. Many have undergone horrific suffering. "

This information was updated from the site managed by The Voice of the Martyrs.

You can show your concern and/or support with prayer action and FREE prayer bands as the world prepares for the 2008 Olympics in China. I know I will not be present in China for the Olympics but I have been paying more attention to what is happening on that side of our planet in recent months.

I see cosmetic changes in preparation for the Olympics. I see what looks like "urban renewal" types of gloss over the undesirable elements of society and present what the world wants to see kinds of activity like the fancy topiary gardens, nice. I wonder how many homeless people were displaced for that land.

Were they Christian? Were they peaceful people? Will we learn from our mistakes? How will further protests be managed by the Chinese government? By the people? Time will tell.

KNOW Your Food Source

Now More Than Ever, we need to know the face on the farmer.
Where did our food come from?
Do we trust this farmer?
Has the produce been handled properly?

Living Simply does contribute to peace full living.

I can think of few better reasons to BUY LOCAL and GO ORGANIC.
Go to your Local Farmer's Market this week and check it out.

FOURTH of JULY

Happy Fourth of July! Laughing



Independence is more than just doing what we want.

Independence is more than just quitting the day job.

Building a Nation and Building a Business

are both a lot of work.

They both take TIME.

They both require INTERDEPENDENCE.


May your Celebration be Joyful and Filled with Peace and Safety and Gratitude.

Remember the Founders of the

United States of America and the brave

commitments they made to build a nation...

We Hold These Truths to Be Self Evident. . .




NOTES: Thanks for being a part of my team. Have a great weekend.
