And you think you have a diverse parish or diocese...

"After explaining the context for ministry in five political regions (Palestine, Israel, Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon) and suffering hardships which drive Christians from the area, Bishop Dawani stated 'we are a people who overcome challenges with the love of Christ … Jerusalem is the city of Resurrection (where) death has been defeated and eternal life given to all who believe. We are people of hope and your commitment in keeping that hope alive is as important now as it ever was.' ”

-Bishop Suheil Dawani of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem, speaking to the Canadian General Synod of the Anglican Church of Canada, from the June Newsletter of the Diocese of Jerusalem.
