The death has been announced of Dr Subhi Ghosheh. He worked as a doctor in Jerusalem from 1953-71. He had a heart for the poor people he treated, often foregoing charges or paying for medication for those who had no money. He was also renowned as an expert on the history of Jerusalem and wrote about Palestinian culture when he was exiled to live in Kuwait and Amman from 1971 onwards.
- Lord, we give thanks for the life of Dr Ghosheh. We thank you especially for his compassionate heart as he worked among the people of Jerusalem. We appreciate his love for his native Palestine, even though he, like so many other Palestinians, was forced to live in exile for more than half his lifetime. Lord, in your mercy…hear our prayer.
