Julia Fisher talks to Evan Thomas. He is a pastor in Netanya, a town situated just north of Tel Aviv on the shores of the Mediterranean in Israel. Autumn time marks the start of the cycle of Biblical Feasts. In Israel the significance of these feasts is perhaps better understood than in the rest of the world. So, I asked Evan to explain their significance and relevance for today.
Our aim is to build bridges… To build bridges of understanding and support, in a spirit of reconciliation, between believers (both Jewish and Arab) in the Holy Land (Israel and the Palestinian Areas) and Christians worldwide.
