A Hopeful Sign

Michael Yon has published this picture of Christians in Iraq (joined by Muslims) putting a cross on the dome of a church.

I've become skeptical of the war in Iraq, in concept, and especially in execution, but this is a hopeful sign.

Pressured by Zionism, Islamism, civil conflict in Lebanon, and the Iraq War, Christians have been leaving the region, the most ancient locus of Christianity, for decades, and recent events have made it worse.

So it's encouraging to see this small positive sign.

That is a beautiful picture, and its very encouraging to see God working through people even in the most difficult places.

Thank you for the nice comment on my blog. I genuinely appreciate it.
