A Different Middle Eastern Mindset

Screen Shot 2016-01-11 at 9.54.56 AMWe need upbeat stories now. Leadership seems overwhelmed. Followers are disillusioned. Many people lack the courage to be themselves.

I saw this story and thought I would share it here.  “The typical Iraqi Christian has, over the last 30 years, been displaced four or five times,” says General Secretary of the Bible Society in Lebanon Michael Bassous. “Many of them will never be able to leave Iraq, for financial reasons.” Much of the world has been led by Christian countries for centuries–and yet the Christians are little better than the majority of Muslims at caring for their own. Why is that?

I think it is because we need to surrender our whims to the greater good; and work on our beliefs in our greater power, however we perceive him.
