Today starts a website and blog devoted to matters of faith, particularly related to the interactions and encounters between Christianity and Islam It will have comments on the history involved, especially in Asia, as well as contemporary issues and even on future forecasting.
In 823 C.E. in Baghdad an extremely intriguing figure in Christian history died at the age of 95, Patriarch Timothy 1. He led the Church of the East in Asia for over 50 years and at his death it had spread from West Asia across through Central Asia to India and China. The numbers 823 after my name refer to Timothy’s death year.
This site will deal with the Church of the East: past, present and future, as well as how they have related to the Muslims and other faiths around them. The goal of this blog and other resources on this website is to not only inform both faiths (and others of faith and non-faith) but to encourage authentic encounters that lead to LIFE and not death.
