Message I received from our minister: about Iraq
Advertisements [?]
Dear Family,

While you're going throughout your activities this weekend, I would encourage you to lift up a prayer for what will take place in Iraq on Sunday. I would like to share part of an email I received from a chaplain named Lyle Shackelford. Maybe you received it too: "I will pray with my soldiers before they leave on their convoys and move outside our installation gates here at Tallil. My soldiers are at the nerve center of the logistic operation to deliver the voting machines and election ballots. They will be driving to and entering the arena of the enemy. This is not a game for them it is a historical mission that is extremely dangerous. No voting machines or ballots. No elections. Your prayer support and God's intervention are needed to give democracy a chance in this war torn country."

If this church wasn't so damn happy and proud that we were at war, I would not have a problem with this. It is just the motives and attitudes these people have shown over the last couple of years. They were throwing joy to the Lord when Saddam was caught and members traded the Iraq War deck of cards. So I have a hard time listening this message.
