MECC launched its newly redesigned website

Dr. Souraya Bechealany: It highlights the spaces of faith and hope


Under the slogan “I am making everything new,” the Middle East Council of churches launched on Tuesday, August 28, its website with a new look that reflects the ecumenical mission of the Council, which is based on unity in diversity and partnership in the service of human dignity and openness to the other.

The new website is in line with modern communication technologies and copes with the era of image and video. In her speech, The MECC Secretary General Dr. Souraya Bechealany, considered that the new website is a witness to what the council is achieving. In this context Dr. Souraya said: “Throughout the confrontations of our times, remain the signs of hope. Indeed, we, Churches, communities and believers, men and women, we see hope and life making their way among humans and societies. For the Middle East Council of Churches, it cannot be otherwise”.

furthermore, the Secretary General added: “the new website highlights these spaces of faith and hope, and bears witness to what has been achieved together in the service of life. You will find your own contribution, and that of others too. You will meet the familiar fields of Diakonia, along with new ones that we began to build and re-establish as these two departments: "Theology and Ecumenism" on one hand, and "Communication and Public Relations" on the other. These two complement the work of other Council departments such as the Department of Service to Palestinian Refugees “DSPR”. They build on the beautiful heritage of the past and open up to the challenges of the present time”.

Dr. Souraya Bechealany concluded her speech by addressing to the “Dear friends of MECC" and said: "we thank the Lord for what we have been able to build together and surrender to Him what remains for the service of the dignity, the freedom, and the future of the human person. Together, we look onto the future with the firm and ever renewed conviction of building a world with more justice and fraternity. May the Lord bless the work of our hands…”
