WHAT WESTERN CHRISTIANS CAN LEARN FROM THEIR BROTHERS IN THE EAST
Everyday experiences of isolation are something that all of us have become familiar with since the arrival of COVID-19. Middle East and North African (MENA) nations have been affected too, although isolation in other ways is a daily reality that many of the region’s Christians know only too well. Cairo-born George Makeen, SAT-7’s Arabic Channels Programming Director, explains how this isolation came about, how media is overcoming it, and what Christians in the West can learn from their brothers and sisters.
CROSSING BORDERS, JOINING HEARTS
When George Makeen found himself in a sticky situation during an Egypt-Algeria football match, it revealed to him the power of Jesus to bring people together. In his new blog post, the SAT-7 ARABIC Programming Director shares his joy over how SAT-7’s North African programs are doing the same for lonely believers.
ARE WE ASHAMED OF JESUS TODAY?
New Year marks a time of new beginnings – a time to reflect and restart. It’s an opportunity for Christians to challenge themselves; rededicating to making a difference in the world. George Makeen examines the Gospel of Mark and what it means to live unashamed of Jesus.
EMMANUEL, THE UNWANTED SIGN
As Christmas approaches, one cannot help but look around our region, and indeed the whole world, and wonder where the season’s peace and joy can be found.
