One of the world’s “great souls” of nonviolence, Palestinian Archbishop Elias Chacour preached Sunday January 13th at University Temple United Methodist Church. Chacour is a revered advocate of nonviolent reconciliation between Christian, Jew, Muslim and Arab. He is the current Melkite Greek Catholic Archbishop of the Galilee region in the Holy Land.
Archbishop Chacour is the author of two best selling books: several books: “Blood Brothers” and “We Belong to the Land.” He is a recipient of the World Methodist Peace Award and the Niwano Peace Prize for his work in education as co-founder of the Mar Elias Educational institutions, which have more than 3,000 students and faculty, including Moslems, Christians, Druze, and Jews.
Before his sermon, Archbishop Chacour sat down with TalkingStickTV.
