THE BRIEFING

 

The war in Syria enters its eighth year today, and if we thought we had seen the worst of it, the intense bombardment of Eastern Ghouta would seem to prove us wrong. Over 1,100 civilians have been killed since the Syrian government stepped up its campaign last month, and a Christian district of government-held Damascus is suffering under rebel fire. On top of this, Turkey’s offensive against Kurdish-controlled areas now endangers the lives of 350,000 civilians trapped in the city of Afrin. In North Africa, Algerian churches face a crackdown, while Egypt’s churches have seen more hopeful developments.

NEW CHURCH HONOURS 21 KILLED BY IS

 

Exactly three years after a video of the beheading of 21 Christians on a Libyan beach horrified the world, a new church in the Egyptian village of Al-Aour has been dedicated in their memory. SAT-7 filmed the occasion and spoke with relatives of some of the 21 who were martyred for their faith.

MISSING VOICES

 

Grace, our Bethlehem blogger, has been thrilled by the people from all over the Arab world who are using the online theology courses she teaches. Writing on International Women’s Day (8 March), she says her greatest joy is to see ordinary women - including those from impoverished communities - inspired and equipped by the Bible. Many she has met and taught have the potential to be of great service to the Body of Christ, but some hard work needs to be done first on patriarchal attitudes…
