Bishop Younan Visit
Bishop Munib Younan, the bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land, and the president of the Lutheran World Federation, visited St. John's Lutheran Church on July 24. Bishop Younan spoke about the discord between Israel and Palestinians, about the ministry of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land as a church under occupation, and about the broader work of the 70 million Lutherans worldwide. It was an honor to host the Bishop, as he holds the highest office possible in the Lutheran communion.
