10 LESSONS FROM SYRIA FOR A POST-ELECTION SOUTH AFRICA AND A PRE-ELECTION USA

21 MAY 2019 – A team from INcontext International travelled to Syria in May in order to understand the realities of faith when a Church is caught in a prolonged war. The war has not only produced a strong and vibrant Church but has created lessons of faith that few would have the privilege of experiencing. The team found strength in the midst of brokenness and beauty amongst the ashes. The Church in Syria truly reflects the words of Brennan Manning: “In Love’s service, only wounded soldiers can serve.”
