I vividly remember it was April of 1991. Easter week. I watched the evening news that evening. The Kurds, thousands of them, were camped on a mountainside fleeing Saddam Hussien’s murderous wrath. The camera slowly swept the mountainside taking in hundreds of them, sitting stone still, hollow eyed with hunger. I saw women staring into some private distance holding small children now skin on bone.

The Lord said to His disciples, “Every one who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven; but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven.
“Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; and whoever does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me.”
Then Peter said in reply, “Lo, we have left everything and followed you. What then shall we have?” Jesus said to them, “Truly, I say to you, in the new world, when the Son of man shall sit on his glorious…
