      World church group mourns death of Bulgarian 'bridge builder'

      Geneva (ENI). The World Council of Churches is remembering Todor Sabev, a lay theologian and church historian from the Bulgarian Orthodox Church, who served as deputy general secretary of the Geneva-based church grouping from 1979 to 1993. "Because of his personality combining moral authority and human warmth, he played the role of bridge-builder between the East and the West, between Orthodox and other member churches of the WCC, between the fellowship of member churches and the Roman Catholic Church," WCC general secretary the Rev. Samuel Kobia said in message after the announcement of Sabev's death. 216 words, ENI-08-0745]
