March 7th,2014, marked the 2014 date for the annual World Day of Prayer..
This year the theme was focused on Christianity in Egypt.
As the key-note speaker, I shared the attached speech. Reflecting back, I am horrified that Mr. Fahmy, an accomplished and prize winning Canadian journalist is still rotting in an Egyptian Jail. He, along with colleagues working as journalists, observing the state of affairs in the Egyptian election ‘process’ were detained , and ultimately jailed for ‘inciting a riot’…. Freedom of speech is as far from Egypt as the sun….
I have absolutely no answers…only questions….But I want Mr. Fahmy to be okay…and i guess I have to start with that…Taking action will be a whole lot more difficult…but i know i have to….
in prayerful consideration, ..lynne Desertsinthestreamspeech
