A Call to Prayer

Posted on: 22 February 2007

There is currently a delegation of thirteen individuals from various Christian organizations in the United States who have gone to Iran on a diplomatic mission of their own, meeting with religious/governmental leaders of that country.  They hope to engage in the dialogue that certain people have refused, in the hopes that peace might be brought to the region.  Pray that they will be kept safe. Pray that their mission will be fruitful.  No sane person wants war, and I pray that the message of peace that they bring resound in the hearts of all involved in this potential crisis.

Boy, am I prayin’. Thanks for the news!

As long as the dialogue focuses on the commonality that Judaism, Christianity, and Islam share as Children of Abraham, and each side does not resort to evangelism. then this dialogue might bear fruit.

BTW, I’ve read several of your posts and found them interesting and insightful. Also I want to thank you for visiting my blog and commenting on one of my posts. I’ve posted a reply to your comment and hope you will come back and read it.

Peace!

In regards to your first comment John, thankfully this delegation is composed of Mennonites, Quakers, Methodists, and Episcopalians. So I think that at least the Christian delegation ought to be able to hold back from evangelizing. I’m very thankful that Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson aren’t involved in this, but people of God who are truly devoted to peacemaking,
