Befriending the Bishops

The visit by the senior-most primate bishop of the worldwide Anglican community gave a fresh impetus to the Zoroastrians in UK.

“To the best of my knowledge it is the first time in the history of Christianity
and Zoroastrianism that an Archbishop of Canterbury has made an official
visit to a Zoroastrian place of worship,” remarked Malcolm Deboo, president of the Zoroastrian Trust Funds of Europe (ZTFE) when welcoming Dr Rowan Williams, the 104th Lord Archbishop of Canterbury. “In
the light of this community I feel that I am touching some very great root of the religious inspiration of so many of the world religious faiths at this
present point in time,” remarked the Archbishop adding that “for a small community in size your contribution is great… It’s important in this
country to remember the smaller communities of faith; just as I have sometimes said, there is no such thing as a small church, only small Christians. Heart and vision is what matters.”
