New Year Message from Canon Andrew White- “The Vicar of Baghdad”

Shema for the New Year I have been asked what are our words from Baghdad for the New Year.

It is simple it is the words of the Shema Israel.

The ultimate words in Judaism are also the Ultimate words for all Christians.

In Deut.6:3-9 Verse 4&5 “Hear oh Israel the Lord our G-d the Lord is one. Love the Lord your G-d with all your heart, all your soul and all your strength.”

It may be like what you have heard me say before, well it is.

Love changes everything.

You want to see revival well love, you want to see your family change then love them.

You want to see difficult colleagues changed at work then love them.

It may sound easy but it is not.

At the very heart of the Message of Jesus was the call to Love.

It is a difficult thing to learn and begin by loving yourself.

Then and only then will we see people able to bring about love.

People often say to me how do you manage to do all your work in Iraq with all these terrible people. Well the answer is simple.

We just love!

Happy and Blessed New Year from all at St George’s Dojos Diner Baghdad
