Perichoresis Newsletter – December 2018
A Letter from the Chairman
My greetings to you all in this holiday season! As we begin to look towards the New Year, we at Perichoresis have felt a call to share our work more widely with our partners. So many things have happened these last few years, and part of our continued growth has been thanks to the many organizations that have journeyed this road with us. It is my hope that these seasonal updates from Perichoresis will be able to share the highlights of our life together, and encourage you in your own ministry and work.
As Christians, and as descendants of people who have been refugees and have experienced the deprivations of war, we face the new challenges of our time head-on. You can read more about our history inside this newsletter, like how our NGO grew out of a single church outreach project started in 2012.
Our vision is to use all potential material and spiritual resources in order to offer our beleaguered fellow humans, both Greeks and foreigners, the dignity they merit, to help them gain prospects for the future, and to mediate for their smooth inclusion and integration in the local community.
Our actions as an organization are a response to the commandment of our Lord Jesus Christ to love our neighbor and, as such, we are persuaded it will benefit the whole of Greek society.
This is why we are so dedicated to our work. As we go forward, we hope for a New Year filled with peace and brotherly love, bringing dignity and restoration to people in need!
May the Spirit of God bless you this Christmas season!
With the love of Christ,
Dr. Paris Papageorgiou
Elder of the Greek Evangelical Church
Chairman of the Board of Directors of Perichoresis
