On Saturday evening, New Year's Eve, we celebrate the year and we pray for 2012 together with our Egyptian congregation. This worship service begins at 9 pm.
It will be a dual-language service. The experiment on Xmas-Eve proved to be massively succesful! After this service, you'll get a nice memento and finger food and drinks. Come and enjoy!
So... hoping to see you on Friday and Saturday!

A white Christmas I do not expect this year, global warming etc... :-)
I hope to see you on Friday. Many of us were traveling or just skipping last week, so let's make sure that we meet one another this Friday. Maybe you have a friend who may want to come along as well?
After church this Friday the Church Council (Amira, Thomas, Andre and I) will be meeting. Do mail us your ideas!

Friday I will preach on 1 Thessalonians 4:1-12 - Paul continues to speak about love. 'Love one wife, love all Christians, and mind your own business', seems to be a good summary.
This week, with the deacons and priests of the diocese, we will retreat to the desert. Much sunshine, no beach. I will have to lead a session on the lessons we as clergy can learn from the letter that church father Polycarp (ca 150 AD) wrote to the congregation in Philippi. Sound esoteric, but it is rather practical and great reading! (If you like an English or an Arabic copy of the letter, mail me and you'll get it!
