Christ at the Checkpoint
Since September I have been involved in the preparation and follow-up of the 2nd International Christ at the Checkpoint conference, held in Bethlehem and sponsored by the Bethlehem Bible College. Both conferences (2010 and 2012) were highly successful in making the voice of Palestinian Christians heard throughout the Evangelical church worldwide ( see “I am a Palestinian Christian”: http://vimeo.com/38682306)
The remainder of the week was spent listening to presentations from major Evangelical speakers from around the world, networking with participants and having opportunities to visit sites such as Hebron, The Tent of Nations, Bethlehem and surroundings and East Jerusalem.
A 3rd CATC conference is now in the planning stages for the U.S. in 2013 with a return to Bethlehem in 2014.
It was a tremendous privilege to be part of this work and to meet others from around the world who are actively engaged in advocacy and in furthering the Kingdom of God through ministries of peace and justice.
Blessings and peace,
