70th Anniversary Greetings from the Awareness Foundation

22 August 2018

Rev. Nadim Nassar, founder and executive director of the Awareness Foundation, offers the WCC his warmest congratulations on its 70th anniversary. Nassar, who received a scholarship from the WCC in the 1990s to pursue theological studies, went on to become the only Syrian priest in the Church of England. He then founded the Awareness Foundation, an ecumenical charity that promotes peace and reconciliation in the West and the Middle East through education and dialogue. “I hope and pray that the World Council of Churches continues its mission in spreading the culture of peace and life in our fragile world, which is in desperate need of peacemakers,” he writes.
