Iraq pilgrimage reflects interfaith commitment

The Alliance remains grateful for the witness of Bishop Malkhaz Songulashvili with the Evangelical Baptist Church of Georgia, an Active Hope ministry partner. 

He and his colleagues stay on the front lines of justice, advocacy and interfaith work in the Republic of Georgia and throughout the region, and recently he participated in the Arbaeen Pilgrimage from Najaf to Karbala, Iraq.

The event, the world's largest annual pilgrimage, marks the end of the 40-day mourning period following Ashura. It is undertaken primarily by Shia Muslims, but Christians and others also take part. Pursue these videos to learn more, and to see the bishop's involvement.
