More Violence and Strife in Egypt

I’ve been vaguely aware of general discontent in Egypt for a few weeks, and even blogged about the state of nervousness among my brothers and sisters in Christ there. I somehow missed that the general unrest has grown so widespread and violent that there is a very real chance that the government of Hosni Mubarak might be in its last days, or even hours. Thanks to a friend of my college friend Jesse Thouin, I was pointed to this website which is posting continual updates on the situation. (I haven’t checked out anything else about the site, so I’m not offering a general endorsement.) If you aren’t familiar, start at the top of the post for the complete background. If you have been following it, skip towards the bottom where the post is continually updated as information becomes available to the blogger. I have appreciated that he is telling you all of his sources, and being honest about blatant disagreements between sources of information. I’ve been refreshing the page periodically all day, and praying for a peaceful resolution or transfer of power. I’m also praying that whatever the outcome, the Kingdom of God will be given a chance to expand in Egypt, and the Copts will be brought closer to Christ.
