A message of condolence from Bishop of Jerusalem

Dear Family and Friends of Bishop Shaw,
It has been my privilege and honor to know and serve with my dear friend and brother, Bishop Tom.
He has been a genuine and encouraging brother in Christ and I shall always be thankful for the journey of faith and fellowship we shared together.
Our Heavenly Father has called Tom home, where suffering, sorrow, and pain are no more and where there is everlasting light, love, and joy.  We entrust our dear friend to God’s eternal goodness and give thanks for Tom’s life of faith, love, and service here among us.
To Bishop Tom’s family, to the Society of Saint John the Evangelist, to the Diocese of Massachusetts, and all of his friends, I send my heartfelt condolence and my deepest prayers.
May God uphold you by His Spirit and comfort you with His Love now and always.
The Rt. Rev. Suheil Dawani
Anglican Bishop in Jerusalem
