The Church in Egypt (Update)

In case you weren't aware, things could be going better for Christians in Egypt. Back when the turmoil began in Egypt I expressed concerns that not only would the long standing persecution of the church in Egypt intensify under the new government (or lack thereof) but that Christians, when given a global stage on which to respond, would do so inappropriately. The trials of the Egyptian church have intensified; its response has been a mixed bag.

I hope that even though the American media has largely moved on to bigger and more sensational stories that American Christians will not forget their brothers and sisters who suffer and who struggle to endure suffering in the manner which Christ has taught us.
