This week, we are led to think about political systems and peace. Global leaders continue to meet and discuss the situation in North Korea. At the same time, our neighbours up north are planning an upcoming election. In Singapore, our government is planning a round of Cabinet reshuffle, and continue to look into means to address social inequity. As Christians living in this world, how can we also pray for it while remembering that this place is not our home?
