St George’s Church in Baghdad

A brief glimpse of the work of Canon Andrew White at St George’s in Baghdad.

Canon Andrew White is author of Faith Under Fire, President of FRRME, the Anglican priest of St George’s in Baghdad and a Middle East Peacemaker.

On the day the Boston Marathon was bombed, far worse bombings took place in Iraq. The curate of St George’s narrowly escaped with his life.

Synchronicity: Only recently was I telling my lovely friend Annie of St George’s in Baghdad and the work of Canon Andrew White. This morning I received from Andrew this video. In the post an in-house newsletter of Lincoln Cathedral, with highlighted a thank you from FRRME on behalf of Canon Andrew White for their generous donation of £1,000 to their important work of peace and reconciliation in the Middle East. I may, in part, had something to do with this, as I gave Lincoln Cathedral a DVD of a talk Andrew White gave in Guildford. From little seeds grow great things.
