Musings as of . . . late Monday night Feb. 28th.

#1. Mary T. Lederleiter, in her book, Cross-Cultural Partnerships: Navigating the Complexities of Money and Mission, IVP Books, Illiniois, 2010:

"Remember the big picture.
You are working to help build the kingdom of God.
God's purposes will not be advanced if you lose your temper
and bring shame upon yourself and others."
Need I say more to me or to you.

#2. Muamma Gaddafi:  As late as 1 p.m.  EST, the BBC reported this breaking news: "Libyan leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi tells the BBC all Libyans love him and would die to protect him, during an interview in Tripoli."   Visions of Grandeur for sure and somehow the ability to look out across the scene and be totally blinded to what the truth is.

#3. Somalia:  Given the recent breaking news from FoxNews: "Danish foreign ministry reports Somali pirates seized yacht in Indian Ocean with 7 Danes aboard, including 3 children."  This is after they recently killed 4 Americans, but also suffered heavy losses themselves.  I said and asked, "Surely, it's time for some elevated action.  What do others think?"  Some agreed and some asked what I would recommend.  Here's my reply . . . 

"I think you can do one of two things: Put more military escorts on the ocean -- it would be good to have "ally" ships around there anyway; secondly, you can resolve to move in and stabilize Somalia. Yes, there will be a cost, but from what I have read, the people want to be freed from the situation they are now in and the danger they present to the world. They want to get ahead."

SO. would do you think now?  Or do we just let this piracy go on? 

That's it for tonight.  Keep on musing and sharing your thoughts.  Tomorrow starts a new month.
