As I am away from Prague I make it a point to read the PRAGUE POST, the English newspaper of Prague, often to keep up with Czech happenings and as I was czeching it out today I found an interesting article, entitled Searching for Saviors. Now I was more than a little intrigued to see the title, but I was more than intrigued as I read it.
The article, sadly, isn’t about Czech seeking the Savior, in the sense I pray and long for the Czechs seeking the Savior, but it is referring to Czechs that want to see the historical churches, that are left empty across the whole country, saved. You know Christianity is an after thought when this is happening to old church buildings:
As a result of the sale, techno parties and strip shows have filled the building where Jan Hus preached, stoking simmering resentment from historians and religious people who accuse the state of neglecting cultural treasures.
Now it does break my heart to see these amazing buildings used for some of these vile happenings (I mean how sacrilegious are techno parties, I shudder at the thought of this…), but what breaks my heart is that the vast majority of Czechs don’t really care. Partly because you would be fortunate to find one out of ten Czechs that even would say they believe in God. May God cause His Church to grow in Czech, and I’m not talking about any buildings, but the Bride, the Church, that Christ died for. Please do czech out the article, click HERE.
Until the Church is thriving in Czech….
