Bishop Younan Speaks at Conference on Christians in the Middle East

Posted on May 27, 2013 by karin

Beirut, Lebanon: On May 22 2013, Lutheran World Federation (LWF) President, Bishop Munib Younan of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land (ELCJHL), spoke during the World Council of Churches (WCC) and Middle East Council of Churches (MECC) conference on Christian Presence and Witness in the Middle East. “We do not live in the mentality of the ghetto, nor in the mentality of a minority complex, nor do we live as dhimmi (dependent) people,” said Bishop Younan. “We have always been, as Arab Christians, building our societies, loyal to our countries and nationalities, bringing hope in hopeless situations.”

    I lift my Christian brothers and sisters in the middle east in prayer. I pray that the Holy Spirit will empower them to bring the good news of Jesus to the muslim population and all of the lost in that region.
