Following the news with the Jerusalem and Middle East Church Association

Following the news with the Jerusalem and Middle East Church Association

If you haven’t heard of the Jerusalem and Middle East Church Association, now would be a good time to familiarize yourself.

The situation of Christians in various parts of the Middle East is desperate at the moment, and the JMECA news page is a good way to learn about the situation from an Anglican point of view.

Current stories include:

the latest news from Al Ahli Hopsital, a ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem

the plight of Christians fleeing Qaraqosh in Nineveh province after it was captured by ISIS

Gerald Butt’s report for the Church Times on the possible end of Christianity in Iraq.

The news page can’t always keep up with the pace of events, but it usually captures the Anglican dimension of the current situation, which the mainstream media frequently overlook.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
