For courage beyond belief, listen in to Canon Andrew White, Vicar of Iraq, as he talks to Michael Buerk on BBC Radio 4 about his religious and political beliefs. Based on his knowledge of the situation in the Middle East, he backed the war in Iraq, by the way!
Two or three years ago, Andrew visited Manchester. Seated in my lounge, he reassured members of the Jewish community of his support for the State of Israel. He also urged the senior rabbis and Anglican clergy present to work together for better understanding.
He made quite an impression! And in the last two years relations between the Church of England and the world-wide Jewish community have vastly improved.
