This is a beautiful video from #MyJihad.

The setting is Cairo, Egypt.  Imam Mazhar Shaheen from Omar Makram Mosque attends the Qasr El-Dobara church for Christmas, along with a goodly number of his own congregation.

The testimony of Imam Mazhar is that the experience of standing alongside each other in the battle for a new Egypt has formed a new unity between the Christians and Muslims of Egypt. That unity has always been there as Egyptian Christians and Muslims have lived and fought alongside each other over the generations, but the ordeal of the ‘Arab Spring’ in Egypt has made the bond even closer!

The visit of the Imam reminds me very strongly of my dear friend Sheikh Mansour visiting our small church here in Dulwich Hill during Easter of 2010.

This video is a message of hope for Egypt. It is also a message of hope for all humanity – that the unity we discover in working together for a better world is more powerful than any of the differences that divide us!
