I continue to be thankful for your leadership Pastor Scott. Thank you for bringing up for thoughtful discussion how we as Christian brothers and sisters should respond to this in the media. Matthew 25:31-46 "whatever you did for the least of these... you did for me" should be forefront in our thoughts. Thank you for finding links that we can read and explore that support us in those thoughts. For me sometimes I get discouraged with so much negativity. Yet I can read these other articles and I feel supported by my faith and by scripture, and by others who share God's word.

Keep em' comin' !!
