October 2022

Dear friends of NEME,

Grace and peace to you in the beautiful name of our Lord.  I am so glad that through Him we are given a ministry of reconciliation to all creation – something needed now more than ever. I pray that He will continue to enlighten us to walk that path with skill and wisdom—and to bring many people with us on the journey. 

NEME Retreat
As you read this, a group of us will be in the Seattle area for our first NEME retreat, praying and seeking Him for that very thing: rethinking the church’s role regarding the gospel and conflict in the Holy Land. Thank you for keeping this strategic gathering (and the fruit we hope will emerge from it) in your prayers.

Apartheid Webinar Series
Please also pray for our two-part webinar to follow on November 3 and 10. We will be exploring questions around Israel and Apartheid. Are these claims are justified? Is this term helpful or harmful? How can a Christian who wishes to support both Jewish and Palestinian people sensitively and thoughtfully respond?  We'd love for you to join us for these important conversations with Palestinian, Jewish, and South African followers of Christ. Learn more and register for the webinar series here.
