Praying for peace in Charlottesville…

Christian leaders from around the nation are calling for prayer and calm, in the wake of violent protests in Charlottesville, Virginia between “white supremacist” groups and counter-protestors over the weekend.

 

“…there is no place in a Christian worldview for beliefs about racial superiority or inferiority. Any group claiming to be Christian while simultaneously promoting racial division is not really Christian; it’s merely using Christianity (as a) cover for its sinful purposes.”  – Dr Alan Snyder, Professor of History at Southeastern University in Lakeland, Fla.

“…put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator (God). Here there is no Greek or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, or free, but Christ is all and is in all.

Colossians 3:10-11 Berean Study Bible

 

Amazon says it is taking action against potentially counterfeit solar eclipse glasses. Some customers who purchased glasses on Amazon that “may not comply with industry standards” have received ‘refunds’.

Amazon has also removed a few listings for glasses on its website “out of an abundance of caution.” It did not name any of those listings in its statement.
