Palestine-Israel Global Justice Trip
June 18-June 30, 2012
Dr. Eleazar S. Fernandez, professor of constructive theology
Dr. Peter Makari, area executive, Middle East and Europe, Global Ministries
The Palestine-Israel Travel Seminar is an expression of the church’s commitment to the formation of seminary students, clergy, and lay leaders who embody a greater understanding of our global realities, the interconnections of our lives, and the mission of the global church. The trip provides an opportunity for participants to see closely the Israeli-Palestinian context and listen to people’s stories of survival, struggle, and hopes. Part of the trip will be to engage in conversations with individuals who have devoted themselves to the ministry of dialogue and peace-building. Moreover, there will be opportunities to visit holy sites that are central to the major religious faiths in the area.
