Maryam and Marzieh, the two Iranian women imprisoned for their faith, have been acquitted of all charges by the Iranian judicial authorities. Their spiritual parents commented: "Both young women have shown exceptional courage and daring to tell an Islamic judge that they would never deny their faith in Christ."

How difficult is it for Muslim women to believe in Jesus? Faith Today’s Karen Stiller interviewed Joy Loewen, author of Woman to Woman, Sharing Jesus with a Muslim Friend, concerning outreach to Muslim women in Canada. They appreciate fellowship with Christians she says and encourages Canadian Christian women to develop friendships and relationships across cultural divides.

In Canadian churches divides have to be bridged across generations as well. Aaron Epp, writing for ChristianWeek, won second place with the Canadian Church Press for his article, Where Are Our Young People? " He quotes sociologist Reginald Bibby that teens and young adults seek “worthwhile” involvement “resulting in the enhancement of their lives and the lives of those who matter most to them. Otherwise, their outlook … seems to be, Why bother?"

A recent Faith Today article notes similar trends. The president of The Fellowship of Evangelical Baptist Churches in Canada and his daughter reflect on the future of churches and denominations. Young adults today seek authentic compassion and service, says Ruth Kaiser. “It’s a test of faith to find my personal convictions more in line with the priorities of some non-believers than with the priorities of many churches.”

These are among articles featured on this week. We invite you to check out the others. But here are two needing mention.

Writer Pam Peters-Pries speaks to women. Have Christian women been seduced into emulating Martha Stewart-style hostessing that's often out of our reach? she asks. Instead she found comfort in the down-to-earth advice in a simple Mennonite cookbook.

Freelance journalist Jason Panella also has something culinary to offer. He invites us to stop with him and sample a gastronomic delight from the heart of Mississippi – Hwy 61 Chili. Hot stuff! The recipe is included!

Have a sunny week!
