Description

Syria is a Muslim-majority country; Christians comprise less than 8% of the population. But this Christian community is diverse. Damascus is the seat of three patriarchates: the Syriac Orthodox, the Greek Orthodox and the Greek Catholic. In addition to these global centers, there are local centers: the Maronite Church, the Armenian Church, the Syrian Catholic Church and the Presbyterian Church. This Christian community, regardless of denomination, has suffered since the Syrian Civil War began in 2011. This session will discuss this suffering community and how the church has continued to show the love of Christ to the Syrian people.
