“The ﬁrst response is prayer… We do not retaliate, we do not respond as possibly other communities would do.” – quote from the documentary Under Caesar’s Sword.
If you have 26 minutes to spare, I highly recommend watching a new documentary (Nov. 2016) produced in cooperation between Georgetown University’s Berkley Center for Religion, Peace and World Affairs and Notre Dame’s Center for Ethics and Culture as part of a global research project.
The short documentary Under Caesar’s Sword is a brief glimpse into the lives of persecuted Christians around the world.
If, after you watch this documentary, you are moved to share it with your church, Sunday School class, youth group, bible study group or any other small group, there are additional resources such as a downloadable discussion guide and how to use social media to create a special event for viewing the film. For those resources, visit: http://ucs.nd.edu/film/discuss/
There are also links on the film’s main page to the conference held in Rome and how you can learn about what is happening to Christians in other nations.
After watching this film, I have just 3 words for you:
Share, Share, Pray.
