One of the joys of being in higher education is hearing good news from former students. I
was very happy to hear from Elias Said, a former student of mine from when I was teaching at the seminary in Nazareth, who was ordained to the pastorate at the Haifa Assembly of God.
Over the years I have published a number of articles in St Francis Magazine. The online journal focused on Christianity and Christian witness in the context of the Arab world specifically, and the Muslim world more broadly.
I always felt the journal played a unique role. But word has reached me through the grapevine that the website became too costly to maintain. The PDFs of the articles will hopefully be made available some time down the road. But I’m not in charge of that.
But for now, I am able to make my own articles available. So, here are numerous links…
This was published last year but I had not posted it to my blog yet. This brief article includes a historical sketch for Christ Church (Episcopal/Anglican) in Nazareth, and a description of the liturgy as it presently exists.
As the director of publications for Nazareth Seminary I’m glad to share with you all our most recent Mary’s Well Occasional Paper (2:1) by my colleague Phil Sumpter. The focus is on the post-1948 period.
