Ekklesia is delighted to announce that we will be running both the script and podcasts from five short Easter talks on Premier Christian Radio by our friend and contributor, Harry Hagopian, former executive secretary for the Middle East Council of Churches (MECC) and now an ecumenical, legal and political consultant for the Armenian Orthodox Church.

The focus will be on the life, experience and witness of the often-forgotten historic Christian communities across the Middle East - 13 million of them.

The 'thought for the day' style 2-3 minute reflections will be broadcast twice a day from 5-9 April 2010. You can listen live on line at

Dr Harry Hagopian is also involved with ACEP, the Paris-based Christians in Political Action ( His own website is called Epektasis (
