Blog martyr

The last song we sang at the service for Kay’s father one of his favorites: Once to Every Man and Nation. It’s a pretty stark call to Do the Right Thing no matter the cost, and the third verse begins: “By the light of burning martyrs, Christ, thy bleeding feet we track.”

This lyric came to mind reading about a Saudi girl who bravely blogged her new faith in Jesus. Her father cut her tongue before setting her ablaze. ++Lord, receive your faithful servant, and the many others around the world who lose their lives for your sake.++ (h/t TSK)

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.
