Forum Hour: "Building Hope in Our Holy Land"

On Sunday, January 29, 2017, Immanuel Church-on the-Hill's Forum Hour featured John Lent, Deputy Director of the U.S. foundation, The American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem.  He reported on the humanitarian work of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem, which owns and operates schools, hospitals and centers for children with disabilities in Palestine, Israel, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon.

Mr. Lent also shared his experiences working with the Christian community in the Middle East and the Episcopal institutions that provide education and healthcare to all, regardless of religion, ethnicity or financial means -- and he discussed the importance of sustaining the Christian presence in our Holy Land as a force for peace and reconciliation.
