We are pleased to announce the launch of the "Images of Israel" course at Rancho Palos Verdes, CA, on November 18 at St. Peter’s by the Sea Presbyterian Church.
The Reverend Dr. Judy Yates Siker, Interim Pastor and Head of Staff at St. Peter’s by the Sea and New Paths steering committee member, and Dr. Marcie Lenk, Shalom Hartman Institute Research Fellow and co-director of New Paths, will be presenting the "Images of Israel" course at the launch at the November 18 event. The event is free.
"Images of Israel" is a six-part adult study program that empowers groups of Christians to have a robust experience in learning about Israel in its complexity, while bringing Christian theology and values into the conversation.
As part of the New Paths: Christians Engaging Israel project, the heart of "Images of Israel" is engagement. Participants work with texts, ideas, images, fellow learners, and leaders to explore Israel—as a state, as a people, as a nation, and as a land—and to clarify the commitment of Christians to work for justice and peace among Palestinians and Jews.
