Stuttgart (ENI). At a time when many Christians worry about the future of fellow believers in the Holy Land, the first Arab elected as president of the Lutheran World Federation has highlighted their situation, and urged them not to emigrate.
Preaching on 25 July, the day after his election as LWF president, Jerusalem Lutheran Bishop Munib Younan called on those
present to, “pray that Palestinian Christians may not lose faith and leave the country”. In an interview with ENInews, Younan had earlier said, “We ask
Arab Christians not to emigrate. What is the Holy Land without Christians?”
