Prayer for Hostages in Afghanistan

I’ve been super busy with work and school stuff lately that I am behind on my blog reading, and I haven’t been tracking with most of the news, other than a quick scan of headlines on the web. Whether it’s my problem or the U.S. media’s problem, the story of a group of Korean aid workers being kidnapped by the Taliban in Afghanistan has escaped me. One was murdered.

In the mean time, I did hear that there was some kind of CNN YouTube debate, Michael Vick is going on trial for his dog fighting operation, and Lindsay Lohan is an addict (still).

If these were white, American hostages, would this story have gotten by without notice? Unlikely.

Read Eugene Cho‘s summaries of the story here, and please pray for the hostages, their families, and their captors. Eugene is a pastor in Seattle, with a diverse, growing church.
