Our current Learning Community has just completed two months of learning that make up our Understanding Phase. Our second phase (Exposure) will begin when our participants land on the ground in Israel/Palestine to immerse into conflict and learn from the peacemakers embedded within.
Here is a bit more about the Understanding Phase and why we see this as an essential piece of cultivating everyday peacemakers:
“Through diverse reading and viewing, comprehensive lectures and dialogue, and access to national and international peacemakers we explore the historical development of a particular conflict, diverse theological frameworks, international politics, social & economic implications, and the peacemaking practices of Jesus. Understanding will equip you to enter into relationships more compassionately and into conflict more intelligently.”
