Eco-guilt talks in Paris instead anti-ISIS agreement

Monday marked the opening of the United Nations climate change conference in Paris, with leaders from nearly 150 countries in attendance.

Carmen Fowler LaBerge: The Middle East-- When peace is in your hopes but not on your calendar

For many in the midst of the conflict peace is something that is in their hopes but not on their calendars. So, today, let us not imagine that we have the answers or that we know the timeline. Let us simply pray for the peace of Jerusalem as those who live and labor there consider what it will take to make peace.
