Caught in a revolution

Tripoli priest Hamdy Sedky Daoud

Hamdy Sedky Daoud is a priest at the Anglican Church of Christ the King in Tripoli. A native of Egypt, he studied at the Evangelical Presbyterian Seminary in Cairo and has a diploma from Chichester Theological College in England. During the uprising against Muammar Qaddafi, Daoud tried to ad­dress issues of power in Libya and the feelings of hopelessness and helplessness that affected his congregation, most of them foreigners. Daoud was reached by e-mail.

How long you have been at Christ the King and what are your ministries there?

 I have been at the church since March 2008, and I have been the priest in charge for three years. I serve a multinational congregation—we have Indians, Paki­stanis, Nigerians and Egyptians worshiping with us. We also had many Westerners before the uprising.
