A Book Review
Lian Xi recounts the story of a Chinese, Christian, political dissident during the Mao era. Imprisoned, tortured, and then executed in 1968 at the height of the Cultural Revolution, Lin Zhao wrote from prison using her own blood. The author draws on these writings as well as a wide range of interviews to tell her story.
I thought about those Thanksgivings this year as we contemplate the prospect of a very different Thanksgiving. Covid-19 might prevent us from having the usual gatherings of family or friends; the food may be different. Maybe this is the year to stop and tell a few people that we are thankful for them. And to thank God for them.
