Canon Andrew White, the Vicar of Bagdad, was here to speak with clergy – Anglican and otherwise – to share with us something of the experience of the persecuted Iraqi Christians and his ministry to them and among them. It was a powerful witness to us. He is going around privately, to raise funds for those who have fled to the North of Iraq or to Jordan.
He does so, while struggling with MS – so his speech is a little laboured, and he has trouble with his balance – he has a personal assistant to help him in his travels. But he shared with us his joy in these labours for the flock in his care.
