It’s so easy to forget how blessed I am to be living in a country where religious freedom is celebrated (of course, that can seriously debated and I recognize that) but when compared to Egypt, a country where Coptic Christians have survived and have kept their faith alive and flourishing despite the oppression and persecution they face on the daily, living in America is a breeze.
In the face of the recent attack on St. Mark’s Cathedral in Cairo, I just want to remind people to keep the Copts in Egypt as well as all the religious minorities around the whole world in their thoughts and prayers. Now more than ever it is important to support each other and build each other up regardless of our faiths, to love each other and be there for one another in the hopes of developing our world as well as our spiritual lives.
