Just Peacemaking Video Series: #1

In a time of volatile relationships in the Middle East that have only worsened due to polarizing rhetoric and political posturing, I am stepping into the middle of it all with a team of Just Peacemakers led by leading Christian, Jewish and Muslim scholars/advocates. Here is a post that gives more insight into the who’s and what’s of the trip. ¬†Believing the reign of Jesus transcends borders, we seek to create initiatives that step into conflict without settling for the justification of mass violence. Join me as I explore the human stories behind each side of the Israel-Palestine conflict.

Sorry for the video quality! ¬†It will probably only get worse once I’m on the ground in Israel/Palestine.

Here are a few books/resources that I have read in the past couple weeks in preparation if your interested in learning more about this extremely important issue.

1. Just Peacemaking: Transforming Initiatives for Justice and Peace

2. Christian Zionism: Road-map to Armageddon?

3. Nonviolence and Peace Building in Islam: Theory and Practice
