Kirsty Birkett comments on media coverage of three major news events in the past few weeks.
'As wars rage, it is hard to make sense of the horror witnessed in Gaza, Ukraine and Syria.' That is the front page subheading of the lead article for this week's The Guardian Weekly by Jonathan Freedland (with the main title: 'Sifting through the wreckage of tragic news, we struggle to find meaning').
The article is a well written and thoughtful reflection on the horrors of this past week, as Israel increased its response to Hamas's constant firing upon its citizens, Malaysia airlines flight MH17 was shot down over Ukraine, and a further 115 people, 25 of them civilians, were killed in Syria. The horrors of the plane wreck, of a father picking up the remains of his two year old son in Gaza – these are 'unbearable', the author writes. True.

In particular, it is loaded with fundamental perspectives on salvation-history, justification and the Christian experience, all of which we must in turn allow to inform our overall theology.
