|The only Syrian-born priest in the Church of England, The Rev. Nadim Nassar of London and Syria, is a passionate and captivating author, preacher, and advocate for building ecumenical and interfaith bridges in a world torn by strife and devastating warfare.
Just returned from ministry with children, youth and young adults in Syria and Iraq, he will speak Sunday, March 24 at Charlotte’s 6,000 member Christ Episcopal Church, as part of the church’s Faith and Courage Initiative and Lenten Faith Forum series on reconciliation, healing hurt, and building hope. Rector Chip Edens will interview him in All Saints’ Hall at 10 o’clock. Join us: https://livestream.com/christchurch
At Grace Cathedral in San Francisco at 9:30 Sunday morning, March 31, Nadim will be interviewed by Dean Malcolm Clemens Young. Nadim will speak about the situation in the Middle East, “particularly how Christians are still affected, about our two programs there, and the resources needed to reach more and more children and young people.”
Nadim is the founder of the international Awareness Foundation and travels the world to encourage and inspire dialogue among Christians, Jews, and Muslims. His captivating book The Culture of God was published last fall, and he teaches throughout the Middle East, North America, Europe and Asia.
His work and the work of the Awareness Foundation in Syria and Iraq, supported by prayerful partners and donors from around the globe, is life-giving.
He was brought up in a large Christian family in Lattakia, Syria. His studies in Beirut at the Near East School of Theology between 1981 and 1988 during the Lebanese Civil War often put his life at risk and had a profound effect on him. He was ordained by the Bishop of London at Holy Trinity Church, Sloane Square in 2004. His upbringing in the Middle East and his understanding of the Abrahamic faiths mean Nassar is uniquely placed to offer an authentic Christian voice to other faiths, especially Islam.
His organization raises our awareness on the need to build peaceful, healing communities that include people of all faiths in the Middle East – through events such as a recent international conference in London at the House of Lords last November.
