In a statement, the Synod said: “We congratulate both Archbishop Suheil and Bishop Michael on their appointments, and we give thanks for Archbishop Mouneer’s service as our Primate since 2007….Please uphold the Province of Jerusalem and the Middle East in your prayers.”

    Mmmmm. The Diocese of Jerusalem receives significant financial support from the Episcopal Church. Despite the theological conservatism of a largely Palestinian diocese, a welcoming embrace is extended by Archbishop Suheil to the breadth of North American theological identities.

    One might expect then, a rather different relationship with GAFCON than under Archbishop Mouneer’s leadership.
