Where Is Your God?

This morning I got Isaiah Chapter 36 as part of my scripture reading for today and I had to go on to read the next chapter, the story was that engaging. I knew about the story of the Assyrians and how an angel slew 185,000 fighting men in one night.

Any way someone quoted a portion of Ms Adichie’s Tedx speech “We should all be feminists” (it’s on YouTube and the transcribed version is available online, just Google it!)
