ACT Alliance Forum Meeting Held at Church of the Redeemer
Bishop Azar hosted the Act Palestine Forum this morning at the Church of Redeemer in Jerusalem this morning as part of a new ACT Palestine Forum initiative to strengthen the relationship between ACT Alliance partners and local churches for the sake of supporting the indigenous Christian presence here in the Holy Land. Delegates from ACT Church of Sweden, ACT Alliance, DSPR/MECC, DCA/NCA, CMEP, MCC, the ELCA, and the LWF were all in attendance.
Bishop Azar presented the ministry of the ELCJHL, as well as its mission going forward regarding the church’s important role in local education, gender justice, environmental justice, and diaconal service. Bishop Azar spoke about the importance of the ACT Alliance partners to the ELCJHL, and how their ministry serves a great need for Christian support during a point of great struggle for the slimming Christian population here in the Holy Land.
Thank you to all ACT Alliance colleagues for your accompaniment to the ELCJHL, and we look forward to this new chapter in partnership for promoting justice and hope together.
