Rev. Dr. Victor Makari and Sara Makari prayer card

In his work as partnership liaison, the bulk of Victor’s time is spent providing consultative support for the witness of the church to issues of religion and state in the Arab world. Victor and Sara view their call to be primarily one of presence and support with our partners. “Maintaining the bonds of relationship with the Christian community, and giving substance to the fellowship we have together in the body of Christ is very important,” say Sara and Victor. Sara edits English language publications produced by the Diyar Consortium which is an ecumenically oriented organization initiated by the Christmas Lutheran Church of Bethlehem. Meeting frequently with visiting Christian pilgrimage groups from around the world contributes to the groups’ deeper understanding of life in the “holy land.”
