News from the Anglican Diocese in Egypt

Good to be back home in the Middle East! I will say the consultation I attended was very helpful and while I have some reservations I am looking forward to putting the stuff into practice.

That having been said I do have some more travel coming up, to GAFCON. If you will be there then you know what it is, if you don't know what it is then it's probably not important to you. If anyone will be there and would like to meet for kebab or something like e-mail me at winterlightning [a+] safe-mail [do+] net.

Meanwhile, here is some recent news from the Episcopal Diocese of Egypt, North Africa, and the Horn of Africa. Congrats to soon-to-be-bishop Bill, whom I have never met personally:

The following announcement was made by the office of the President Bishop and Bishop of Egypt [Mouneer Anis]:

It is with great joy that we announce the formation of a new Episcopal Area in North Africa. We have decided to appoint the Rev. Canon Dr. Bill Musk as Area Bishop for North Africa as well as Rector of St. George’s, Tunis.

With the growth of the Church in this area and increasing demands for discipleship, community service and interfaith dialogue, we felt that the time has come to create this new Episcopal Area. We are sure that Canon Bill Musk has a lot to contribute to the churches in this area.

Rev. Dr. Bill Musk, 59 years, and his wife Hilary have lived in this region for over a decade and served here in All Saints' Cathedral from 1981 to 1986. He is a well-known Islamicist and the author of several books: The Unseen Face of Islam, Touching the Soul of Islam, Holy War, Kissing Cousins? and The Certainty Trap.

He is currently the vicar of Holy Trinity & St Matthias, Tulse Hill, London. He has four daughters and three grandchildren.

We warmly welcome Bill and Hilary back to our diocesan family. Your prayer support for them and the churches in North Africa would be much appreciated.
