The ancient Church of the East once stretched from Turkey, through Persia and Afghanistan, to India and China, with branches in Yemen and South Arabia. In 1000 AD, 40% of all the Christians of the world belonged to this church. Why don’t we know about this? Why has this been called the lost history of Christianity? How did the development of this church differ from the church in the West, the Church of Rome, with which we are more familiar? Finally, what happened to this church and what is the state of the remnants of this church which still lives on in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, the U.S. and Australia?
Join Chuck Gosselink this Sunday, February 26 at 10 am in the Social Hall for our Adult Forum. Chuck was our guest speaker in October on “A Message from the Churches of Iraq” and attendees were sorry he had to stop at the end of the church school hour.
Hope to see you then!
