You’re invited to the next Plowshares Peace Talk on Monday (November 12) at 7 p.m. As usual, we’ll meet at the Weaver-Swartz home at 510 Talbott Dr. in Wilmore. The topic is “Israel-Palestine and the Pursuit of Peace: Stories, History, and Reflections on a Year Lived in Jerusalem.”
Our guest will be Aaron Woods, a doctoral student studying the Old Testament at Asbury Theological Seminary. Aaron spent a year teaching history and peace at a Christian school primarily attended by Palestinian Muslims in an Israeli-controlled area of Jerusalem. He recently sent a short survey to his former colleagues to in turn give to their high school students about their life, goals, what they like to do outside school, but also what they want Americans to know, what they think peace looks like, and how the conflict has directly impacted them. He’s collected 172 responses and will share them with us next Monday. Please come hear Aaron share the voices of young Palestinian Muslims and describe ways we can listen and learn more. I think you’ll find this fascinating.
