Every month seems to bring about another moment when we desperately call upon our God to bring peace and healing. Last month, we discussed the division and racial tension we are experiencing here in the U.S and the importance of how we as believers should respond.
A different tragedy has recently happened. On August 4th, the city of Beirut was shook by a catastrophic blast. It is times such as these we need to comfort, support and bring Christ to those who are hurting, suffering and in despair. The following is a recent article featured in Christianity Today. Evangelical leaders describe the damage, how Christians are helping, and the need for a hope beyond politics.
One hour later at work, and Sarah Chetti might have been one of thousands in a Beirut hospital.
Director of the INSAAF migrant worker ministry in Lebanon, Chetti’s colleagues described shards of broken glass flying through the air, and the metal frames of doors ripped from their hinges.
It was a similar experience for the one staff member inside the Youth for Christ youth center not far from the blast. To avoid the “colossal damage,” he ducked to the floor. Re-welding was necessary just to lock up the next day.
Peter Ford was fortunate. Working quietly in his faculty office at the Near East School of Theology near downtown Beirut, the first small reverberations stirred his curiosity to investigate the problem.
Moments later, the huge blast blew in his window and spewed the glass across his desk.
Miraculously, the dozen evangelical churches and ministries in Lebanon contacted by CT reported no deaths and few serious injuries caused by the massive explosion. The official national tally is now over 100 dead, with over 5,000 injured.
If they had, there would be nowhere for the bodies to go.
