It’s more than politics

When Eva Schloss, step sister of Anne Frank, attended the opening of the award winning play: ‘And Then They Came For Me – Remembering the World of Anne Frank’, she said: ‘Many young people do not know very much about what happened… how hatred and prejudice prevailed and prevented people from resisting evil… we are trying to prevent a repetition of such horrors.’ The play’s director, Nic Careem said: ‘We sometimes reassure ourselves that these horrors occurred in a different time. But it is worth considering that the Nazi era was born in one of the most advanced and civilized nations ever… what’s more, it was a democracy.’
That’s why the Bible tells us to ‘Watch and pray,’ especially for our leaders. We think it’s just politics, but the conflict ultimately is still a spiritual one.
