A Conversation with Doug Dicks, PC(USA) Mission Co-worker in Israel/Palestine
March 21 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Please join I-PEAce (Israel/Palestine Education and Action team) for what promises to be an exciting conversation with Doug Dicks, PC(USA) mission coworker in Israel/Palestine. Doug will be joining us virtually on Google Meet (details below) from Bethlehem, in the West Bank, and will discuss his role and activities as our PC(USA) “boots on the ground” regional liaison for Israel, Palestine, and Jordan. Doug will particularly focus on Palestinian Christians as he describes:
- The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the tourism industry and resulting effects on the wellbeing of Palestinian families,
- How the Covid-19 vaccine is currently being distributed in Palestine,
- Palestinian Christians’ views on the new Biden administration,
- Safety and wellbeing when living in a land under occupation,
- Actions Third Church and the broader Christian community can take to help enable a just and lasting peace.
