Sobering Night

This week was a sobering one. I was sharing with a friend all about the film Lily’s Choice and I talked about Lilias Trotter’s words about “an appointed time.” On my way home I had a call from a friend telling me that at the very time we were discussing the film, a French tourist was decapitated by ISIS in Algeria. The Middle East is on the cusp of major war. The drumbeats of war are everywhere. There is hatred for everything western. As terror expands, many people are beginning to feel a real hatred unfairly towards Arabs and Islam. In the midst of all of this, in a miraculous way, at God’s appointed time, important Ruskin letters to Lilias Trotter were found.

In God’s appointed time in the midst of hatred, misunderstanding, war, and terror, at this very moment we have the message of Jesus Christ through Lilias’ life. This is a message of love—the message of a woman who gave up fame, fortune and comfort to commit her life to the people of Algeria. As the film will show, the Algerians marveled at how much she loved and respected them.
