Camille's editorial of February 15, 2022: When faith carries us

The news of the day offers us to discover testimonies of people carried by their faith in Christ. She proves to be an unwavering support in their daily lives. 

On Tuesday a Russian court began examining a new case against the anti-corruption activist Alexei Navalny, an opponent of Vladimir Putin. Already imprisoned for more than a year, he faces up to ten additional years in prison.

Last year during another appeal trial, Alexei Navalny revealed his faith in God in court, claiming that it is support in his fight for freedom.

The Los Angeles Rams won the Super Bowl 23-20 on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals. In an interview last week with Sports Spectrum magazine, Jalen Ramsey, one of the Rams players, testified to the impact of his faith on his personal and professional life.

“Without my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I am honestly nothing,” he said.

As Russia's military posture grew further on Ukraine's borders this weekend and Westerners fear an imminent invasion, Ukrainian Christians remain determined to come together and praise God. George Thomas, a reporter for CBN, shared on Facebook the video of a worship service in Ukraine from Sunday. He salutes their commitment and calls us to pray for them.

To end with Austrian skier Matthias Mayer who has just won a gold medal and a bronze medal at the Winter Olympics in Beijing.

This committed Christian said in 2017 that he was carried in his sporting success by his faith in God.

"For me, achievements and sporting successes are not only driven by physical and mental training, but also a lot by my faith and the special strength that it brings me," he said.
