In this season of Easter and Pentecost, when our minds are fixed on the world-changing events 2000 years ago in ancient Israel... when better to learn about the current events and people in this place that still impacts the whole world? Gain an understanding of the modern history and the prospects for peace in this holy land, the cradle of our faith. If you have ever thought “that place and that conflict are too complicated to understand,” join us and find out that isn’t true!
May 7, 14, 21, 28 and June 4
5 Wednesday evenings, 7:00-9:00 pm with a break and refreshments every session
In one session, we will have a special guest from Palestine: a UM missionary who has lived there for 20 years.
Culver-Palms United Methodist Church
Blvd • Culver City, CA 90230
This class will help newcomers to the subject learn the basics about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict: some history and geography, the major parties including the role of the US, the crucial issues and obstacles to peace, current prospects for peace, the role of the church today and how people of faith can support a peaceful tomorrow.
Our class will provide a safe environment to ask any questions and discuss our views in a respectful, supportive circle of participants. Each session will include a video and discussion time, with small reading assignments between sessions.
Join us to learn, share, and gain hope for achieving peace in the Holy Land, a peace that can change dramatically the world we live in.
