A couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine was the guest speaker in church. He serves in a very closed country, and has had many adventures as a result. Most of those adventures involved situations in which his life was under some kind of threat if he didn't handle it correctly.
There are no churches in that country, and for most of the few Christians, fellowship involves a coded conversation with one other person.
As I listened, I found myself struck by how much I take for granted, and the small things by which I am sometimes irritated. I've got to admit, I really have it pretty good.
