Friends of the Holy Land held an online conversation with the Revd Dr Munther Isaac, Senior Pastor of the Evangelical Christmas Church, Bethlehem and the Revd Dr Fadi Diab, Rector of St Andrew’s Episcopal Church, Ramallah and St Peter’s Episcopal Church in Birzeit. Although both are used to living in crisis, the war which has continued since October is the longest and most shocking in its intensity that they have ever experienced. The sheer scale of the numbers killed and the disruption to daily life is new.

We joined by almost 100 people from around the UK and Ireland where we learned first-hand:

How the general population of Gaza and the West Bank are coping with this terrible war and the particular impact of the small vulnerable Christian community.

Where can the Christian community find resilience during Lent.

What do they ask of the Church in the UK and Ireland and their Christian brothers and sisters.

What are their hopes for the future.
