"Faultfinding friends" (July 3)

Good column on criticism of President Obama, but I've got my own report card. He promised change and he has certainly brought change, so for that he gets an A+. On the quality and value of that change, however, he gets an F.
Anita Wolfenberger; New Market, Tenn.

"How Mark Souder fell" (June 19)

As a believer whose husband serves in the state House and who has witnessed the lives of many who are elected to state-wide office, let me offer my limited observation: Election to public office does not corrupt anyone's morals. Character is formed long before a political win. Elected office is only a very hot fire that exposes the heart of the one elected.
Janis Kristiansen; Snohomish, Wash.

"Freedom to serve" (June 19)

I think the whole country thinks all conservatives are white Republicans and all liberals are black Democrats. It gets discouraging. But in the last couple of years, I've noticed more and more shades on WORLD's pages, from vanilla to cocoa: young politicians, Effective Compassion people, and those in other professions and ministries. Thank you for highlighting people of color. It helps readers see that God-centered principles are at work in the 'hood, on the hill, and in the marketplace.
Danette Matty; St. Paul, Minn.

A heartfelt thank-you to WORLD for your regular profiles of Christian organizations. My heart is always touched to read about so many wonderful ministries in the Body of Christ. In a world that is often discouraging, we need these regular reminders of how God is advancing His kingdom.
Lisa Meek; Bothell, Wash.

"From Esther to evolution" (June 19)

Some leaders in the church who have accommodated themselves to the prevailing secular paradigm have taken to criticizing creationists for being an impediment to evangelism. When the church is willing to trust in the Bible's authority over man's wisdom, we will see a great evangelical awakening.
Bob Srigley; Charlottesville, Va.

"A Jew for Jesus" (June 19)

Shalom, Moishe Rosen. He never met a Jewish person he didn't love with the love of Y'Shua. As he feasts at the Lord's banquet table, I am sure he hears, "Well done, good and faithful servant."
Deborah (Ross) Oury; Hartland, Wis.

"Life over death" (June 19)

I sobbed after reading "Life over death," the incredible stories of five mothers who did not abort their "imperfect" babies. May God bless these brave, loving women.
Joan George; Strathmore, Calif.

"Debate changer" (June 19)

I am glad to hear about the Congressional Prayer Caucus. I have so often thought about how we need God's wisdom in our governmental decisions and wished our lawmakers would seek His face.
Sharon Shaw; Richmond, Va.


Author Josh McDowell handed out over 3,000 autographed books at this year's Arab International Festival in Dearborn, Mich. ("Smelting pot," July 17, 2010).

The correct name for the park mentioned in "On God's Provision" is Fort Greene Park (July 31, 2010).
