CONVERSATIONS FOR PEACE IN PALESTINE AND ISRAEL

CONVERSATIONS FOR PEACE  IN PALESTINE AND ISRAEL

If you are concerned about issues dividing Israel and Palestine and you are ready to think about your role as a Christian in influencing a peaceful resolution, please come to “Conversations for Peace in Palestine and Israel,” a Mennonite Central Committee U.S. event with J. Daryl Byler at Madison Street Church (3991 Madison Street) on the evening of Saturday, August 16.  Byler is a former MCC representative in Palestine and Israel, Iran, Iraq and Jordan and the current executive director for Eastern Mennonite University’s Center for Justice and Peacemaking.

“Agreeing on ways to love and encourage peace in the context of the Middle East is a challenge for Christians in the U.S., including MCC supporters, because many have different theological perspectives about the modern-day state of Israel,” Byler said. “As we explore these topics together, I hope our understanding of others’ perspectives and the needs of Palestinians and Israelis will grow.”
