What We're Doing to Help
Where Is Our Place?
The Significance of the “Nun” Symbol
Nun,” or ن, is the first letter of the Arabic word for Christian, ‘Nasrani.’ When ISIS issued an ultimatum to Christians in northern Iraq to “convert, pay or die,” they carried out their reign of terror by marking the houses and properties of Christians with this symbol, intended as a slur and a threat. Since then it has become an international symbol of solidarity with Middle Eastern Christians.
Where is Our Place
Fr. Chris has made a documentary detailing his experiences meeting some of the displaced Christians of Iraq.
60 Minutes: Iraq’s Christians Persecuted by Isis
There are few places on earth where Christianity is as old as it is in Iraq. Christians there trace their history to the first century apostles. But today, their existence has been threatened by the terrorist group that calls itself Islamic State.
We are very pleased to announce that we will be making iROCK4iRAQ an annual event, and our next concert is scheduled for September 17, 2016!
