As those who worship the Jewish Messiah, it probably goes without saying that Christians are all called to care about the state of Israel. There is so much to celebrate about the state of Israel and there is much to learn about its rich history. Whenever Israel appears in the newspaper headlines, however, it is usually in some negative way. Headlines on Israel are usually reporting on some war, terrorist attack or conflict between Israelis and Palestinians.
Sadly, far too many Christians do not know enough about the history of Israel to understand these headlines, nor have they ever heard anything positive about Israel. For these reasons, this Sunday, November 26, we will be watching a video on the state of Israel and having a discussion that focuses on both the history of this great nation and the things to celebrate about it. I hope you will join me in the parlor at 6:00 p.m. on Sunday evening.
