Day 1 (Saturday, Sept 18, 12 noon, Eastern Time) offers an ecumenical dialogue involving Palestinian and North American theologians and church leaders, who will be in conversation about what the Bible does (and doesn’t) say about the current situation in Palestine and Israel.  Dr. Alex Awad is Dean of Students at Bethlehem Bible College (Bethlehem, Palestine) and Senior Pastor at East Jerusalem Baptist Church; Rev. Carrie Ballenger is Pastor of the Lutheran Church of the Redeemer in Jerusalem; Dr. Ron Dart is teaching in the faculties of Political Science and Religious Studies at University of Fraser Valley, after having worked with Amnesty International.

Day 2 (Saturday, Oct 2, 12 noon, Eastern Time) is a follow-up session, in which participants will have the opportunity to interact with one another in small groups about issues and questions raised in the first session.  This session will be facilitated by Dr. Dan Epp-Tiessen, Professor of Old Testament at Canadian Mennonite University (Winnipeg).
