With all of the historical, religious and political factors involved, it can be difficult to keep a firm grasp on what is happening and why.
On Wednesday, Sept. 23 from 6-7:30 pm in Wilson Chapel, we welcome the Rev. Alex Awad to come share his experiences and perspective with us.
An important partner with Christ United Methodist Church through Global Serving & Outreach, Rev. Awad was born and raised in Jerusalem. With his wife Brenda he is a missionary of The General Board of Global Ministries of the United Methodist Church.
Rev. Awad is Dean of Students and a professor at Bethlehem Bible College and pastor of East Jerusalem Baptist Church.
He is also the author of Palestinian Memories; the Story of a Palestinian Mother and Her People (Bethlehem Bible College, 2008) and Through the Eyes of the Victims (Bethlehem Bible College, 2001), a discussion of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict from the perspective of Palestinians.
Come hear his story on teaching, preaching and living the story of Jesus within the ongoing conflict between Israel and Palestine.
