Prayers and responsible advocacy are much needed for Syria's minority Christian population. Recent unrest in the Middle East has taken a heavy toll on believers in struggling nations, particularly Egypt and Syria. Often, Christianity is closely tied to ethnic and political affiliation, meaning that there are many enemies and few safe havens for vulnerable Christian communities.
Christianity Today's a good source of news on the issue. A few other things to read:
- The Spectator: "Whoever Wins in Syria, Its Christians will Lose."
- Out of Ur: "Lessons From the Egyptian Church" and "Egyptian Christians and Prophetic Politics."
- Stars and Stripes: "Christians, other minorities in Syria fear 'ethnic cleansing"
- Yahoo! News: "Christians Restrain Anger after Egypt Church Attacks."
