In the last month I've had a few posts go live in my other venues about the realities of war, describing a few events surrounding missiles and sirens here in Israel.
The first one, War Sirens and Oil Flasks, appeared on Kindred Grace. This piece is a variation on something I wrote shortly after Operation Pillar of Defense (or Pillar Cloud, as more accurately translated), but I expanded it for our KG audience and our monthly feature on devotional lives. It is a narrative of my *first ever* siren that is woven through the Matt 25 parable of the virgins and lamp stands.
Next, on SAVED News, please view my article called The Midnight Missile. This is a shorter piece describing the events of running down the bomb shelter due to a missile in the middle of the night. This is not a teaching piece, rather simply an update for my readers in the form of little story. This one includes a photo of our shelter for anyone curious about how that space looks and feels.
Life in Israel is so surreal. Sometimes I feel like I live in the Wild Wild West. Hmm.... that sounds like a great upcoming post!
