Dear Friends

Two days ago at a detention center
I met a man from Syria

Syria is in the news a lot these days,
so I asked the man what he would like to see happen

His one-word reply "peace".
Then I mentioned my dream of a Middle East Economic Union (like EU)

He replied: Not possible until the present leadership changes in many countries

"Change not possible without regime change".
Applies to many places....and to the Church
...which is why each day I pick up a few bits of rubbish
