Red Cross

The Angel of Crimea by Dave Arnold

Florence Nightingale took the rough soldier's hand in her own, held it, and caressed it, as his mother might. As the knife cut through the tender flesh and the saw cut through the bone, the soldier never flinched.

Child with World Map

Stepping out on a Cultural Limb by Sylvia Stewart

By observing and asking questions, I learned to roast coffee-an important cultural accomplishment in Ethiopia. The first time I tried it myself, I was at home alone one day. I neglected to wash the beans enough to remove the paper-thin covering on each bean. When my friend, our house worker, came into the kitchen and saw all the little brown tissues that had popped out all over the stove while I was roasting, she asked, "Who did this?" Even though cleaning up the messy stove meant work for both of us, I could tell she was pleased when I admitted, "I did."

Old Opal Ring

With this Ring by Laura Petherbridge

In a few hours my hand would blissfully declare that I was a married woman. My mind drifted to memories of when I was a teenager and of another ring that once occupied the same finger. A lovely opal ring, I received from my mother on my sixteenth birthday. "I also have an opal ring that I cherish," I explained, "but I lost it. I'd give anything to have it today as 'something old' for my wedding."

Old Way New Way

The Peace that Jesus Gives by Morris Williams

Peace! America wants it. Iraq wants it. Saudi-Arabia wants it. Israel wants it. Russia wants it. Latvia wants it. China wants it. It appears that everybody wants it, but they want it on their own terms; and this self-interest has taken peace from the earth.

Coming in April: Lives Transformed!

Sinner woman

A Woman with a Past by Jim Cole-Rous

She knew there was a banquet scheduled in the village where her brother and sister lived, and she had decided that she would enter that dining hall with her most treasured possession in her arms. It had cost her a year's income to buy it, and now she no longer had the earnings that had come to her in the past.
