THE Bishop of Diocese of Cyprus and the Gulf of the Episcopal Church (Anglicans) in Jerusalem and The Middle East, Michael Lewis, has hailed the steps being made by Qatar government for improving relations between people of different faiths.
Lewis, who is in Qatar for an activity connected with the establishment of his community’s QR35mn Anglican Church in Mesaimer, said people could look forward to participate in more meaningful, concrete and cordial dialogues between representatives of different faiths, as a result of what he described as “the atmosphere ushered in by the rulers of this country”.
The representative of the Bishop of Canterbury from the region said Christian brethren all over felt honoured by the initiatives taken by HH the Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani for improving relations between people of different faiths.
Lewis, who is attending the 6th Doha Conference for Inter-faith Dialogues, observed that people of his community were grateful to the Qatar government for taking steps to ensure a permanent worship place. “Only when one meets and talks to people of other faiths, he understands more about others and their religious practices,” he said.
