3. Mideast Christians conflicted about the Arab Spring, especially as anti-Christian violence follows Mubarak ouster in Egypt.

4. John Stott, evangelical statesman, pastor, and builder of the global church, dies at 90.

5. Beijing’s Shouwang Church holds outdoor services for more than six months, enduring mass arrests as it leads China’s booming house churches in unprecedented demands for religious freedom.
