Mardin Protestant Church holds event featuring poetry, songs and theater performance

A Protestant church in southeastern Turkey’s Mardin province celebrated Easter on Sunday.

Mardin Protestant Church in Artuklu district held a special event that featured the recital of poems as well as songs and a theatre performance.

Mardin Protestant Church’s Priest Ender Peker said that Mardin, where people from various ethnic backgrounds and religions live together, is a role model for the world.

“There is a mosque near our church. We have many Muslim friends celebrating our festivities. Similarly, we celebrate their festivities. We love each other and live together, and as long as we love each other, this tolerance will increase more, because tolerance is a fruit of love. People love each other, and as a result, they behave in a tolerant way.”
