The Work of IOCC in Syria
January 26, 2012 Length: 29:20
Syria is in the news a lot these days but what kind of work is being done by the Church in light of the current circumstances. You may be surprised. Listen as we talk with Samer Laham, the Director of the Department of Ecumenical Relations and Development for the Patriarchate of Antioch in Damascus. Samer also coordinates the humanitarian work of IOCC in the country. In the meantime we grieve the loss of Fr. Basilious Nasser who was shot by terrorists in the city of Hama on January 25. May his memory be eternal.
"A wonderful resource to understand the Orthodox Church. Though Evangelical, I have a profound respect for the Orthodox Church and her believers. Many enlightening programs have given me an inkling of a bigger faith; I don’t always agree, but you all have great stuff."
