Letters, March 2012
I have traveled to this area (in Kenya) and met many of these wonderful Christians. (“Fear and faith: As Kenya battles terrorists, church looks to take the Gospel to its increasingly Muslim neighborhood.”) Our brothers and sisters in Nairobi are committed to sharing the Gospel.
Thank you for telling others about the light they shine at Eastleigh.

Wife’s illness draws responses
Thank you for the insightful and caring way you presented your situation. (“Pain, suffering and God’s plan in wife’s illness.”) I have been beset by some health issues recently that have produced the same feelings your wife is experiencing and have begun to do what I should have been doing all along.
And how rewarding it is to serve others! May God bless you all with solutions and greater service.

Thanks for this wonderful article of hope and caring and trusting in the God of all strength and healing.
My husband has gone through similar things with Myasthenia gravis. We almost lost him two-and-a-half years ago. He came out of intensive care telling everyone to trust in the Lord no matter what. We are trusting and sharing more than ever. May God bless you as you encourage others.

Directory change appreciated
In March 2009 the Chronicle published my letter that was critical of 21st Century Christian’s decision to remove from its 2009 directory those congregations which had begun instrumental assemblies in addition to their a cappella worship services.
It is fitting now to congratulate the publisher for changes to the 2012 edition (“Churches with instrumental services return to directory“). They deserve thanks for restoring, as I wrote in 2009, “such a valuable aid to members and a great record of our history — rather than trying to determine that history.”
