Do you ever wonder why, after over 60 years, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict still drags on unresolved? As Christians, what stake do we have in this conflict—and what, if any, responsibility do we have to help make peace between these two peoples?
If you’ve ever asked yourself these questions—or even if you haven’t—please join us for a study of the Palestine-Israel issue offered on four Tuesday evenings in May by Chapel of the Cross, St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church, and Episcopal Church of the Advocate.
This study will use a new educational resource published by the Episcopal Peace Fellowship’s Palestine-Israel Network, entitled Steadfast Hope: The Palestinian Quest for Just Peace. Study of Steadfast Hope by all churches in the Diocese of North Carolina was recommended by the diocesan Palestine-Israel Task Force during the most recent diocesan convention.
Each session will begin at 7:00 p.m. with a DVD presentation followed by discussion. A simple supper will be provided beginning at 6:30 p.m. There will be no charge for the series, but donations to defray the cost of the curriculum will be gladly accepted.
Sessions are as follows:
May 8 at St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church (210 St. Mary’s Road, Hillsborough)
May 15 at Chapel of the Cross (304 East Franklin Street, Chapel Hill)
May 22 at Chapel of the Cross
May 29 at Church of the Advocate (at the Unity Center of Peace, 8800 Seawell School Road, Chapel Hill)
