Peace like a river

The Aug. 17 issue was superb in all aspects. The self-penned cover story by Granger Smith was priceless and precious. To see the ­sovereign hand of God at work is glorious.
    Keith Heck / Grants Pass, Ore.

I was so moved by this ­article that I sent it to a Christian friend who lost a 4-year-old son to cancer. I know she will appreciate this testimony. I’m grateful to have read this and to WORLD for publishing it.
    Helen Williams / Durham, N.C.

Faithful among the nations

Thank you, Jenny Lind Schmitt, for this encouraging story. Your reporting was eye-opening, and I will pray for Wissam al-Saliby and his work. Praise God for raising up someone like him for this purpose at this time.
    M. Ross Walters / Easley, S.C.

Cyber-Tolkiens? Kuyper-bots?

It is hard enough to study theology from Kuyper and Piper and Sproul and Edwards without needing to proofread the work of a machine. Let’s stick with the original text and not pass malarkey off as related to the deep thinkers of religion.
    Russ Frisinger / Divide, Colo.

Good stories, performed well

Jeannette Clift-George, the founder of A.D. Players, was a creative gem. Her first ­theater building had to be humbling for her genius. The George Theater is a monument to her Christian witness.
    Don Johnson / Montgomery, Texas

The church and Trump

An excellent and timely review by Collin Garbarino. Yes, Christians need to run for public office and work in government. What we do not need is for the Church to lose sight of its purpose to evangelize the world and instead become focused on politics. Interestingly, the church in China remains strong despite persecution from the government while the church in the Western world becomes ever weaker.
    Frank Stephens / Lynn Haven, Fla.

Promoted to the pump

When I drove through Oregon several years ago, a stop at the gas station proved confusing. I waited for the lone attendant ­serving 12 pumps to insert my credit card and begin pumping gas. When the nozzle clicked off, I waited for him to reappear. Finally, I removed the nozzle, closed my gas cap, and drove off, hoping I wouldn’t be arrested. Come on, Oregon, it’s 2023.
    Lorraine Fritch / Menifee, Calif.

An evil that looks like love

Thank you, Andrée Seu Peterson and WORLD, for all the times you have made me stop and think—or more than think, react viscerally. I printed out her column from your website so I can come back to it to think more deeply about it later.
    Louise Heerschap / Washington, N.C.

Encouraging words

Thank you for providing me with reliable news and a great source of entertainment. Many of your articles are not only interesting to read but show us how sinful the world really is and how God is showing Himself throughout the world. I enjoy all of the movie reviews and Quick Takes. You have been a great encouragement to me, and I appreciate all you do.
    Joshua Chang / Frisco, Texas

My family has subscribed to the magazine for years now, and I look forward to reading every issue. I love that there is a source of good, sound news presented through a godly lens. I especially love your cover art. It’s always creative and original.
    Sam Kyker / Elizabethton, Tenn.
