In the Presence of Humbling Greatness

Last night Janet and got to hear one of the great men of our time, Canon Andrew White,  otherwise known as the Bishop of Bagdad… He grew up a Pentecostal, and converted to the Church of England where he rose through the ranks until he asked to go and serve in Bagdad where he’s been for 20 years. He talked about loving your enemies, a concept  just cannot get to grips with. Early on in Iraq he got to know Tariq Aziz, Saddam Hussein’s right hand man…

Last week he performed the funeral for Aziz in Jordan, most of his time is now spent there, as Iraq is just a bit dangerous now… But he is going back, ISIS or not, his “people” are there and he’s not abandoning them… You can go to his Facebook Pages and his books to learn more, but being in the presence of such humble greatness made for an amazing evening…
