Julia Fisher talks to Howard Bass – Today I’m in a coffee shop in BeerSheva, in southern Israel talking to Howard Bass. He and his wife emigrated to Israel from America over 30 years ago and he is the leader of a Messianic congregation there. Howard is also very involved with a group of Arab and Jewish pastors who manage to meet together twice a year. As well as building personal relationships despite the challenge of the political situation in the country, these men meet to explore the Bible together to understand what God is doing in Israel in these days.
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.
