Five years after the invasion of Iraq a statement from Bishop Crispian Hollis


Five years after the invasion of Iraq and in the midst of continuing conflict and instability we should all reflect on the lessons that need to be learnt and to ask how we can contribute to creating a better future for Iraq. Above all, we need to remember the people of Iraq as they struggle to rebuild their country. In particular, we ask you to hold in your prayers the Christian community which is undergoing its own Calvary, something brought home with terrible force by the recent abduction and killing of Archbishop Rahho. British military personnel, and the chaplains who accompany them, continue to serve with distinction and they and their families are also in our prayers at this time.

Bishop Crispian Hollis, Chairman International Affairs Dept
