Julia Fisher talks to Evan Thomas – pastor of a Messianic congregation in Netanya, he is also a leading figure in the work of reconciliation between Jews and Palestinians as this week’s programme will reveal. He and his wife Maala recently led a team of twelve Israeli believers – 6 were Jewish and 6 were Palestinian – to Germany where they joined with a group of young German Christians. The idea was to work together and present their combined stories to the people they would meet. I asked Evan whose idea this was.
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.
