UPDATED: Study Resource for Christian Groups based on the Kairos Palestine Movement
Sabeel-Kairos member and academic Karen Fairfax-Chomeley has written an excellent study pack for Christian Groups based on the Kairos Palestine movement and call from Palestinian Christians to respond to the situation of injustice they face.
The pack contains 5 study sessions which take up to 1.5 hours to complete, and aims to;
“encourage an engagement with the Palestinian people through greater understanding of the reality of their lives under occupation and to challenge us as Christians and human beings to take action to uphold dignity and human rights.”
The pack is accessible to all Christians wanting to seek a deeper engagement with the challenges facing Palestinians and Israelis, and is also a fantastic resource for those new to the issues.
