If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honoured, every part rejoices with it. (1 Corinthians 12:26 NIVUK)
On the 10th December the charity Open Doors, who seek to serve persecuted Christians around the world, are going to present a petition to the UN urging them to protect Syria's Christians. So far over 270,000 people have signed and it would be great if you could too. You can sign up here - the 6th December is the closing date for signing so if you're going to sign it please do it straight away.
If you want to know more about what is going on, and why it is important we stand with our Syrian brothers and sisters, I encourage you to watch this video. It's a moving interview with a couple leading a church in Syria talking about the problems they are facing but also the courage, encouragement and peace they are finding in the middle of it all through Christ.
