Rising prices demand prayer

We are always glad to receive The Christian Chronicle’s e-mail updates. I have managed to follow the Web links, and the stories are amazing. The earthquake in China is quite complicated and difficult to comprehend. The rising food and gas prices (Pages 1, 16, June) are alarming, but what can we do? Pray, pray, pray is the solution.
Pray for us too. The situation in Kenya continues to worsen. The people here find it a herculean task to put even a single meal on the table each day.
The column about how we can throw more than a crumb to the hungry (Page 3, June) has really ministered to me in a very special way.

Responses to Churches That Work
With respect to the article on Page 19 of the June Chronicle, (“God’s house in a warehouse”) I have attempted to teach for many years that the physical structure in which the household of God meets is not, not the sanctuary. We, the church individually and corporately is/are the sanctuaries. Meeting in a structure does not sanctify the structure.
Does it really make a difference? Let me ask, does an impersonal God indwell an impersonal building or does a personal God indwell his creation and re-creation? That is really the question.

I read with great interest the article about the Lynn Street church in Parkersburg, W.Va. It is obvious that the church has great zeal. But I am curious about the statement that the congregation is not “an issue church.” Some “issues” involve needless wrangling over matters of opinion. But “issues” do matter when they concern fundamental teachings of the Scriptures.
