Images of Israel

Every Thursday, from 01/11/2018 to 02/15/2018, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Location: Gary United Methodist Church, 224 North Main Street, Wheaton, IL US 60187

"Images of Israel" is a six-part video/lecture series that empowers Christians to have a robust experience in learning about Israel in its complexity, while bringing Christian theology and values into the conversation. 

The program sets forth a fresh basis on which Christians can engage with the Jewish community and Israel. Building on values that Christians share with Jews by virtue of being God’s people, the program offers new language and approaches for issues that have been contentious within churches and between Christians and Jews. 

Participants will 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.

Join us in the Commons for this important and timely conversation, facilitated by Gary members and Wheaton College professors, Dr. Lynn Cohick and Dr. Michael Graves. Registration is requested by contacting 630-668-3100 or . There is no cost to attend.
