compassion 4: chariots of fire

Today, we explore another little known story from the Hebrew scriptures:  the story of Elisha at Dothan (2 Kings 6:8-23).  When the King of Aram sends an army to kill Elisha, Elisha manages not only to survive, but to bring peace.  Pastoral Intern Allison explores Elisha's strategy, which includes aligning himself with the enemy and disarming them with love.  This strategy depends on recognizing the chariots of fire that always surround us, even when we feel like we are fighting a losing battle.
