Pilgrims and Parables

After studying the Beatitudes in our weekly Bible study, several people expressed the desire to learn about the Parables of Jesus. The English-speaking congregations at All Saints’ Cathedral in Cairo consist of brothers and sisters, seekers and the just plain curious from more than 26 nations. There is also diversity in “walks of life”. We have refugees, domestic workers, ambassadors, diplomats, professionals all worshipping together at the Friday and Sunday services. It’s a sampling of heaven to us!
One of the ladies from a very different religious background believed in the “Only Way” a few years ago and continues to grow in understanding. She was unable to attend the Beatitudes study but took home a book. She recently said this:
“The Bible study book on the Beatitudes is really helpful. I had no idea they echoed the Psalms.
Christ really did come to fulfill and confirm as He said.”
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness!
During the summer we will explore the Parables of Jesus. Will you pray that those who are curious about Jesus would come to hear His teachings and believe in Him?
