Christian Zionism Conference: Wednesday 12 August
United Methodists for Kairos Response (UMKR) and Methodist Federation for Social Action (MFSA) present two recognized authorities on Christian Zionism, a disturbing political theology embraced by millions of Americans who now have a tremendous influence on US foreign policy with regard to Israel and Palestine.
Rev. Drs. Stephen Sizer and Munther Isaac will help us understand the theology of Christian Zionism, why it is an inaccurate interpretation of Scripture, how it is harming Palestinian Christians and the entire Middle East peace process, and how to counter this theology in our churches.

Easter in Jerusalem: Saturday 11 April
This Easter, join our Sabeel elders from Jerusalem as they share lessons of liberation and spiritual survival in the midst of continued dispossession, health crises and international chaos. Let us gather together to remember that just as Jesus died on the cross to reveal the eternal, divinity is revealed in the midst of physical destruction.
The live simulcast of prayers, readings, and hymns is intended to bring hearts closer together as closures continue to separate us. We know that whether in person or online, whenever two or three assemble, God is there with us.
The service will commence on Holy Saturday, April 11 at 9 am PST, 12 pm EST, and 7 pm in Palestine. We will send call in information after registration.
All are welcome!
