The Forgotten Faithful: A Window into the Life and Witness of Christians in the Holy Land

Sabeel Liberation Theology Center completed it's 6th International Conference last week. Their theme focusing on Christians in the Holy Land is urgent and compelling. The NCC/CWS General Assembly last week reflected on the plight of these our brothers and sisters, and lifted them up in prayer, following reports from those who visited Israel/Palestine and Lebanon in the past few weeks.

Sabeel is an organization initiated by Palestinian Christians in the Holy Land who seek a just peace based on two states-Palestine and Israel. I have encouraged and facilitated conversations between Rev. Dr. Naim Ateek who leads the organization and the mainstream Jewish organizations in the United States with whom I am in dialogue. Such conversations will continue. I encourage you to read the Conference Statement.
