Ethiopian Church ….


I noticed I have some readers from Ethiopia.

That country (& that area of Africa) was once home to a strong center of Christianity. The Ethiopic Church was a leader in early Christianity.

The centuries and the Islamization of Africa were not entirely kind to the Ethiopic Church.

BUT, it is still a strong Church. And it is one of many Orthodox Churches, which I believe Protestants owe thanks to.

It was Orthodox Churches which taught for centuries that there could be more than just one ‘church.’ And I think that example helped lead our early protestant and baptistic brethren on their journey to reforming the Catholic Church.


That is.

Here is a photo of one of the Churches in Ethiopia:

The Chapel Of The Tablet, Axum, Ethiopia

But, I must admit, I have always liked this one more:

The rock-hewn Church of Saint George in Lalibe...

The rock-hewn Church of Saint George in Lalibela, Ethiopia is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
