A Link From Indonesia

In the course of all of the social, political and other rants that fill this blog, it’s easy to forget that a major source of visitors is our companion site vulcanhammer.net, the site for geotechnical and marine engineering downloads.  In the course of those links this site received one from the website The works of Wiryanto Dewobroto, civil engineering lecturer at the Universitas Pelita Harapan in Indonesia.  Professor Dewobroto is Roman Catholic, and that in the largest Muslim country on the planet.

In the midst of the challenges that face Christians both here and in Indonesia, I especially like his vision statement:

do not worry about your life, . . . your heavenly Father knows that you need . . . . . . seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

His mission statement is as follows:

You are the light of the world. . . . Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.

Both of these are from Mathew’s Gospel, and they bear repeating in the times we live in.
