Thanks be to God through our Lord Jesus Christ for allegedly futile and narcissistic hashtag activism. And above all for the courageous witness of this great woman and daughter of God. The world of full of quiet heroes like her. Let her name be praised in the city gates.

UPDATE: And now she’s been re-arrested. Keep up the pressure and prayers.

UPDATE: Worse and worse. Now they’ve arrest the family. Father, hear our prayer for them through your Son Jesus Christ. Meriam of Nazareth, pray for them!

Upperdate: NPR says they are free again. Thanks be to God!
