What all of us consider a tragedy, a great disaster, and a terrible evil can also be seen as a wake-up call, says Miriam Adeney in response to the September 11 attacks on the World Trade Center. Worldwide e-mail as well as the goods we buy may link us to people all around the world, but many of us continue to live “cocooned in our own little circle of friends, walled off from people who are different,” Adeney says. Our disconnection from the rest of the world is not only detrimental to the future of our nation but also is not faithful to the biblical vision for humanity. Today’s study considers the impact of globalization and its challenge to Christians.
