At 6:00 p.m. on June 30 at Calvary CRC, 400 Beeline Rd. Holland, MI, Kairos West Michigan encourages you to hear Jeff Pribble, Principal at Bethlehem Evangelical Academy in Bethlehem, Palestine, speak on the following:
1) the challenges of doing Christian ministry in a majority Muslim culture while under occupation by a hostile (to Palestinians), unsympathetic (to Christians) foreign power.
2) A school that serves both Muslims and Christians under a regime of “freedom of religion” that prohibits making enrollment decisions based on the religion of the families it is serving.
3) The challenge of operating an English-immersion, pro-actively Christian school when Israeli authorities often do not grant visas to ex-pat Christian volunteer teachers.
4) The challenges of being a Christian leader caught between the “hammer” of Islam and the “rock” of Israeli occupation.
5) AND….try to do all of this while not being offensive to anyone in the either the Israeli or Palestinian divide.
At Kairos West Michigan, we work to unify and mobilize West Michigan Christians to take a stand for peace in Israel/Palestine. We believe that the time is right and that God is preparing the way for peace and justice in Israel and Palestine.
