Nigerian hostage rescue

The Rescue

Back in early November, we listened with interest to the report about Seal Team 6’s rescue of an American in northern Nigeria.

Belief Trap

There exists a common faith in our world that animates and intermingles itself with what we term the major world religions. Many call it ‘animism.’ The term represents beliefs that nature, which surrounds humanity, responds more to spirits, sacred forces, and extraordinary phenomena than to human activity. . . . the story of change in Boto describes a people who escaped the curse of living with animist falsehoods.
