Defiance in Iraq, an Open Thread and Prayer Request

In the midst of all the carnage and brutality committed by ISIS, there are stories of heroism. Facing the risk of torture and death for expressing their beliefs, some courageous Christians in Iraq nevertheless stand defiant in the face of their persecutors. The caption to the video explains it all.

 

Consider this an open thread for Sunday.

Today, August 17, is also the date of a global call to prayer for Iraq. If you feel led, please consider lending your voice as well.
