According to the rector of Christ Church Jerusalem, two things are required of any senior figure coming to the Holy Land — to be fair, be empathetic and not say anything stupid. By this measure his visit was a success, according to the Rev. David Pileggi, who met the Archbishop along with other Anglican leaders when he spoke in the Peace Garden in St. George’s Cathedral.
