Cornerstone: "Christians in Community"
Community is a key part of Christian life, it appears throughout the Bible with Jesus illustrating community throughout the parables.
This is especially vital in the Land of the Holy One where the Christian community is divided especially those communities in the West Bank, where communities are divided by illegal Israeli settlements and in Gaza with its tiny number of Christians – a tiny community who work hard to make a big impact.
At a time when the number of international Christians is beginning to outweigh the number of native Palestinian Christians, solidarity and understanding is more important than ever.
In this edition of Cornerstone we will explore the various Christian communities both in Israel and Palestine. Exploring these communities through the eyes of various people from the international, Israeli, and Palestinian communities.
