The situation in Syria is the world’s largest humanitarian crisis, according to the United Nations. It is easy to feel overwhelmed by what is happening and to lose hope that it is possible to make a difference.
Yet we owe it to our brothers and sisters in Syria to support them during this difficult time. The apostle Paul calls us to “rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep” (Romans 12:15). We cannot simply turn away and ignore the suffering and violence, in which our government plays a role.
