Another view of Lebanon

I'd like to share a portion of an e-mail sent out to pastors in one small church group yesterday. The intent of the mailing was, of course, to stimulate the rasing of funds, this time to help relieve some of the suffering in Lebanon, where our church has had a presence for nearly a hundred years. But you probably won't see anything like this perspective on Fox News.

Just wanted my friends to see that not all US-based Christians are rooting for a near-term Armageddon, or seeing the unfolding tragedy from the viewpoint of spectators in some sort of cosmic/historic/prophetic sporting event. Some are reaching out in solidarity with those who are on the groud, putting their lives at risk to heal, not kill, the vulnerable.
