In a joint sermon by Jon Nofziger and Char Siemens, we heard stories of fellow Christians whose church history in the Middle East is ancient. ┬áJohn talked about his learning tour to Lebanon in May 2016 to see the MCC’s partnerships with churches in and around Syria, and Char spoke about returning to Iraq for 18 weeks. The burdens of daily life vary for displaced peoples depending on their ethnicity and material resources,┬ábut mercy and grace abound amidst many struggles. Despite much exhaustion and poverty, the practicalities of peace are being lived out, one meal at a time. The light of Christ shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it (John 1:5).
