Stephen Sizer Quotes

Two Quotes by: Stephen Sizer of Church of England Vicar of Christchurch Virginia Water, Surrey, UK.

Although they were excluded from the invitation list at the recent Annapolis Middle East Conference, everyone from the Royal Family and the Prime Minister down, and even the US President and American political leaders, and the American people, have been celebrating the visit of an Iranian delegation to Palestine. This Christmas, we have been celebrating how a group of Iranians visited Palestine carrying funding for an opposition figure the authorities wanted dead. Then the Iranians evaded the authorities, ignoring the correct exit procedures and fled the country. Of course, the Queen, Prime Minister and President have not been celebrating contemporary Iranian involvement, but the historic visit of a past Iranian delegation – the Magi (the ‘Wise Men’ or ‘Kings’) who came to Bethlehem bringing gifts of Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh to Jesus. So without Iran and Iranian involvement, we would not have exchanged gifts on Christmas Day!
