Back to blogging after a week away. The news from London is, of course, at the forefront now. Adrian Warnock has been very helpful here. Of course bloggers everywhere are busy with this. Gathering and assessing the news is what many bloggers do, and many of them do it quite well. I will not add to the linking-frenzy here. My prayers are for the families of the victims, of course. We are reminded that mankind is steeped always in his own folly, greed, and bloodlust. Every day men and women reap the unfortunate consequence of sins large and small, personal and cultural, in both quiet and hardly noticed ways, and also in terrible and shocking ways. The Jihadists, of course, must be stopped. But also, and ultimately, we men and women of the so-called Christian West must be looking to the plank in our own eye.
