[21.45 GMT] Working out of openness and trust. By Peggy Gish of CPT (in SooToday, Jim Loney's local paper).

It's easier to talk about not being controlled by fear than it is to actually do it. It takes some struggling to be able to give the underlying tension and fear over to God and to really trust God's care for us and our four colleagues. We need to give each other grace in this.

We ask ourselves daily where to draw the line between continuing the work we feel called to do and caution. Should we visit Iraqi friends, attend local worship services, or meet with particular organizations we worked with in the past? Our struggle is to be wisely cautious, but not allow fear to dominate.

Peggy has also contibuted regularly on Ekklesia.
