The town of Engute, Ethiopia is home to St. Mary's Orthodox Church. Its mission includes not only the services of worship, but an active role in the health and education of the community.

From the column:
Quote
The Development Bible was drafted by decree from His Holiness Abune Paulos, the Patriarch of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, the largest of all Oriental Orthodox churches, with a membership of over 32 million. The Patriarch, who holds a Ph.D. from Princeton and spent seven years in prison during the Derg military regime, is an influential figure in Ethiopia and on the world stage. He is a president of the World Council of Churches and is known in both Africa and among the international community for his efforts to improve the conditions of the continent's refugees.

He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.
