Acts 7:54-60

Stephen's death is not pretty. It's a brutal mugging by a violent crowd. The sharp stones and stripped cloaks look like today's headlines from Darfur, Nairobi, or Iraq. Christian Iraquis are being killed. Martyrdom is on the rise in many places in the world. Stephen, like Jesus, gives us a model for facing a violent world, forgiving those who hurt.
