A few items for your consideration

I am not posting much on my own for a few days, but there are a couple of fascinating articles I would commend to you from Ekkelsia, the British Christian peace oriented organization (Ekkelsia's newsroll is featured in the left column of this blog). 

The first is by Uri Avenery, an Israeli peace activist and former member of the Israeli Knesset, who writes on how President Obama is gently setting a new course in relations with Israel that will alarm the Israeli right-wing. You can read his piece HERE. The second is by Martin Marty, the prominent Lutheran theologian, who writes about the difficulty with overtly Christian prayers in public settings like the inaurgural of President Obama. You can read that HERE.
