Podcast Discussion on the Israel-Gaza War
Posted on October 31, 2023 | Posted by Pastor Daniel
Faith Seeking Understanding, Ascension’s book/podcast/movie club seeks to learn more about our world through the lens of our faith. Sometimes this includes complex, difficult, and divisive issues. The war in Gaza is certainly that.
Join us for a discussion of the war, security of Israel, the plight of Palestinians, and the place of the church and the United States in this conflict. We’ll meet in the church library on November 27 with a zoom option. Contact Pastor Daniel for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is no apolitical way to approach this topic. So, we will instead hear a diversity of voices. Please listen to these three podcast episodes before the discussion.
