Let me post a little further about compassion. This is an almost unprecedented time for Christ-followers. This is a chance for it to be known that we don't live for one country, that we don't hate Muslims, and that we aren't defending the greed, consumerism, and moral debauchery of (much of) the West. I'm so thankful for Christians who are in place in Thailand, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India, and other countries impacted -- as well as for Christian ministries (like Healing Hands -- www. hhi-aid.org) and generous believers who are responding not so that people will see how giving we are but because it is the Way of Christ.
