England-based writer and poet Ann Jean Blyth Phillips (pictured on the right) recently visited the Tantur Ecumenical Institute, accompanying a friend who was conducting research. Phillips is no stranger to the Holy Land. She took a pilgrimage several years ago, but also has a more personal connection. She is the great granddaughter of Bishop Blyth, who served as the Anglican bishop in Jerusalem from 1887 to 1914.
