Even as a former Sunday School student of mine was teaching English in South Korea, North Korea exploded a nuclear bomb. My niece lives in Afghanistan.

The list of worrisome, often terrifying, situations seems endless. If I believed that I was responsible for keeping everyone safe, I might shrink from—and probably sink under—the burden. But I am not responsible for the welfare of the world.
