The violence in Jos, Nigeria has calmed down. The extent of the killing and destruction is shocking. More of both the good news and the bad news of the situation first stated in this post can be found at Mary Beth's blog [look for postings from Nov. 30, 2008 and more current] and at the Christianity Today blog.
Many of Mary Beth's acquaintances have suffered in this situation. Please pray for them. Her writings are a great testament to her faith and how a sense of equilibrium can prevail in the midst of chaos.
