PC(USA) Middle East Monitoring Group releases Kairos Palestine Study Guide

From the Presbyterian News Service:

Fulfilling a portion of its mandate by the 219th General Assembly (2010) of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), the Middle East Monitoring Group (MEMG) has finished its work on a study guide for the Kairos Palestine document.

According to the MEMG’s preamble to the study guide, it “is designed for ordinary Presbyterians, who may have little experience with the plight of Palestinian Christians or the dynamics of the larger Israeli-Palestinian struggle, to better understand what our sisters and brothers in Christ from that region are experiencing and saying about faith and life in the Holy Land through the Kairos Palestine document.”

The Kairos Palestine document (“A moment of truth: A word of faith, hope and love from the heart of Palestinian suffering”) was released in December 2009 by a group of Palestinian Christian theologians, many of whom belong to churches that are partners with the PC(USA). Read the whole story.
