Globalization: Re-uniting the Tower of Babel
March 23, 2009 Reflections Fady Eldeiry

Genesis 11:9 tells us that “the Lord confused the language of the whole world. From there the LORD scattered them over the face of the whole earth.” He did that because their purpose was to make a name for themselves and not to accept that God is the One for them; being part of His

The Pencil of God
March 9, 2009 Reflections Fady Eldeiry

I was watching the movie “Mother Teresa” last night and it was very inspiring. The priest who came to check on her request to start a new congregation, orginally didn’t even want to step out of the Kalkata airport. He wasn’t interested in the vision Mother Teresa had, he didn’t see it. Even Mother Teresa

“Their memories are short”
January 20, 2009 Uncategorized Fady Eldeiry

President Obama replied in his speech to the skepticales reminding them their memories are short. They’re saying that the message of hope is too grand and that we can’t accomplish all this vision. It reminds me of how we forget about God’s faithful when we run into crisis. That’s the age old issue that makes

Throughout life, we learn about freedom: Jesus sets us free, which means we’re not anxious about life’s mysteries, emergencies or surprises, because we know He’s in control and He’s faithful.

The World is Flat; Globalization 0.1
December 22, 2008 Uncategorized Fady Eldeiry

So, Thomas Friedman talks about 2 dates: 11/9 and 9/11… I have a third date! Genesis 11/9… “That is why it was called Babel —because there the LORD confused the language of the whole world. From there the LORD scattered them over the face of the whole earth.” Globalization was at its fullest pre-Genesis 11/9.

The World is Flat
December 21, 2008 Uncategorized Fady Eldeiry

I’ve been reading Thomas Friedman’s “The World is Flat” on and off. Haven’t finished yet, but I’m enjoying it. He talks about a couple dates, 11/9 and 9/11… 11/9/1989 was the date the Berlin wall was opened and the world was introduced to new possibilities of partnering, innovating and globalization. Usually, one would expect peace

“For if, when we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!” Romans 5:10 NIV The Willow Christmas service is amazing this year. It’s about The Light, who came to the world, and about us as
