January reflections

Central African Republic may be a stock answer for Pointless fans but what do you know about the country? Two and a half times larger than the UK but with 9% of our population it's a dangerous place to live with Muslim-Christian conflict for control over the rich mineral resources of diamonds, gold and oil. Illiteracy and extreme poverty are rife but Bible Society continues to work here providing literacy classes for women alongside their distribution of Bibles.

At the start of a New Year we are asked to pray for peace in CAR and that people will know God's incredible healing power in their lives through the dedication of the Bible Society's team as they work for reconciliation.

And perhaps we can challenge ourselves this year with learning a little more about those answers we trot out to quiz questions, for all involve the people and places that are part of God's wonderful creation. DL
