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.
