The Middle East in Transition and the Future and Role of its Christians
Wednesday, May 19, 11am-noon Eastern
The countries of the Middle East region continue to experience major social, political, and economic shifts with uncertain outcomes. What is sure is that the people of the region have been impacted in significant – and even tragic – ways. The Christians and churches of the region have not been exempt from these shifts. What is their future? What has been their role in responding to needs, and what will their role be in what is to come? Join us to hear from the General Secretary of the Middle East Council of Churches, Dr. Michel Abs, as he offers his insight into the context and his vision for the place of Christians in the future.
This webinar is presented in collaboration with the Middle East mission offices of the following ecumenical partners: the Anglican Church of Canada, Church World Service, The Episcopal Church, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, the Presbyterian Church (USA), the Reformed Church in America, the United Methodist Church, and the United Church of Canada.
