Israel-Palestine

Three ways for your church to learn about Israel-Palestine

 

1. Watch our webinar, “Jesus Weeps: An introduction to the Israel-Palestine Conflict.” The webinar covers the history of the conflict, what it’s like to live in the midst of it, and why Mennonites should care. covers the history of the conflict, what it’s like to live in the midst of it, and why Mennonites should care.

 

2. Use our worship materials, “Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem.” In many ways, Jerusalem is a microcosm of our world. It is ancient, beautiful, and teeming with life. And it continues to be torn apart by violence and enmity, fueled by injustice, mistrust, and often—tragically—the misuse of sacred Scripture. “Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem” is a great way for your church to encounter Israel-Palestine together.

 

3. Study the Kairos Palestine Document. The document is a heartfelt call from Palestinian Christians for the world to recognize the sufferings that result from living in the midst of the Israel-Palestine conflict. Studying this document in a Sunday-school class or small group is an excellent way for your church to become more aware of the ramifications of the conflict and the urgency of finding a resolution. http://www.kairospalestine.ps/sites/default/Documents/English.pdf
