Time to Stop

Everyday I get a simple email sent from IFTTT called “10 Things You Need to Know Today”. It has a brief summary of what they consider the top ten stories of the day.  Since I am not in front of TV very much, this is a good way for me to stay on top of current events.  And if there is one thing I learned from Ranger Rick in elementary school, it was that staying on top of current events is important!

Yesterday, the email contained this blurb:

6. Pope Francis begs for end to global crises
Pope Francis on Sunday made an emotional plea to end the various violent conflicts that have bubbled up around the globe in recent weeks. Citing the upcoming 100th anniversary of the start of World War I, the pontiff said he was dismayed by the chaos claiming the lives of innocents — especially children — in the Middle East and Ukraine. “Please stop,” he said at the close of his regular address. “I ask you with all my heart, it’s time to stop.” [Reuters]

This is something that we should all get behind.  There seems there is an unrest around the globe at the moment, and we should all be finding ways to voice our opposition.

14 Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.  Hebrews 12:14 (NIV)
