Thanks, Duane, for this. I am thrilled that pioneers like Shukri Musa and Majid Kawar should be remembered; would Michael Kawar from Nazareth who became an Anglican priest in the 1870/80′s have been any relation? Do continue encouraging this work!
Hi Malcolm, the answer is I don’t know. There are lots of Kawars in and around Nazareth, including a few in the Baptist churches there. All in all, I don’t know that there is one single Kawar family though. I will ask Azar if he knows.
Thank you for your kind response – having written about Michael Kawar and his pioneering ministry in the Episcopal Church in the 19th century, it would indeed be very interesting to know of any link with Majeed. I was with CMS in Jordan myself for 6 years, and very much enjoyed your lecture.
Thank you so much for confirming the link between the Revd. Majid Kawar and the Revd. Michael Kawar – the Lord is faithful, and so are his servants….. Every good wish for the New year to you and all your family.
