Prudence, balance, thought, and Christianity
Mollie Hemingway offers 3 suggestions regarding the Syrian refugee issue.  The piece ends up looking at Christian beliefs – for good reason. She makes many good points, all of which I will not try to summarize here.

One take-away (near the end of the article) is that the answer to the question “What should we do?” has two answers. The answer of what the government should do is different from what people and churches should so. The mission trips, mission activities, and UMCOR relief efforts are key, and don’t need to pass Congress.
