August 10:  A Palestinian Christian Perspective on the Arab-Israeli Conflict

The Rev. Yohanna Katanacho and Dina Katanacho are Palestinian Israelis who serve in the academic arena of evangelical Christianity in both Israel and Palestine. The Rev. Yohanna is academic dean at Nazareth Evangelical College in Galilee, and his wife Dina is director of the Arab Israeli Bible Society. Both Katanachos also have connections with Bethlehem Bible College in the Palestinian city where Jesus was born. The couple and their three sons are guests this summer of the global concerns program at Christ Presbyterian Church, Edina, and we are fortunate that they are available to spend some time with us this Wednesday morning.
