Speed of sound
Bad news travels fast. Mass shootings in America are heard about in remote villages on the other side of the world. Plane crashes in remote reaches are learned about – and stressed about – soon after they happen. If only the Good News could travel as quickly.

Suspension (or hanging) bridges are everywhere in Nepal. It’s the only way across deep ravines and raging rivers. For some, a suspension bridge can be intimidating, even a little scary. For others, it is simply the route that God wants us to take.
