DescriptionThe Lenten Ceasefire Campaign Presents-

A Political Education Primer: Christian Zionism, B.D.S., and the Pursuit of a Christ-Centered Response to Apartheid, Dispossession, and Genocide in the Holy Land

 



A broad coalition of national and local Christian organizations and nonviolent peacemakers have envisioned a Lenten Ceasefire Campaign rooted in the transforming power of Jesus’ way of active nonviolence. Join the Lenten Ceasefire Campaign for an intensive evening of political education, self-examination, and conversation as we explore:

 

The Immediate Context: What is the situation on the ground in Gaza and throughout Palestine? How did we get here? Are we bearing witness of Genocide in real time?

 

Christian Zionism: What is it? How does it influence both American Christianity and American Policy? How is it impacting the situation on the ground in Gaza and throughout Palestine? And, what is a faithful, Christ-centered response to Christian Zionism?

 

Palestinian Christians: How are Palestinian Christians responding to the crisis in Gaza and throughout Palestine? What message do they have for western Christians, and what responsibility does the Western church have for our Palestinian siblings? How might we amplify their message?

 

Boycotts, Divestments, and Sanctions: What is B.D.S.? Why is economic and cultural activism important? Is B.D.S. a proper Christian response to the crisis in Palestine, particularly Gaza, and Israeli apartheid? How might communities of faith mobilize to make an impact for justice and peace?
