Church always on the scene

The Church always seems to be involved in world events, not only by praying and by providing relief and practical assistance, but also by behind-the-scenes negotiation or advice-giving.  The unrest in North Africa and the Middle East involves a few Christians, but the vast majority are Muslims, and the Church is still working to achieve more than just the safety of the Christian minorities.

Just a few weeks ago I thought that the people in these countries lived, for the most part, in peace because they were happy with their lives and their political situations.  Not so, it seems.  Discontent and unhappiness must have been simmering below the surface.
