for this special SOUP SUPPER series!
Encounter the life and ministry of Jesus in a fresh and exciting new way. In this DVD series, author and pastor Adam Hamilton explores the earthly ministry of Jesus to help you hear his teaching and view his actions anew by drawing upon insights from history, archaeology, and the geography of the Holy Land. Hamilton uses his knowledge from extensive travel in Israel to enrich many episodes from Jesus' three years of ministry. Travel to the Jordan River, where Jesus was baptized, and the Judean wilderness where he was tempted. Climb the mountain where Jesus may have given his most famous sermon, and take a boat into the Sea of Galilee. This journey into the heart of the land where Jesus walked, will deepen your understanding of his life, while also increasing your love and faith in his Way.
Soup supper at 6:30 pm; DVD viewing and discussion at 7:15 pm.

An opportunity to learn from a Christian Palestinian living in the Holy Land
The Presbyterian Peacemaking Program makes it possible for leaders from our partner denominations and partner organizations around the world to visit the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) each year to interpret issues of peace and justice. Since 1984 over 220 International Peacemakers from more than 57 countries have been hosted by Presbyterians. These visits have informed Presbyterians, opened hearts and minds, touched lives, established relationships and inspired new ministries. By sharing stories of their work and witness, they help us to understand peace and justice concerns around the world and they provide insights that can inspire us to greater faithfulness. Their visits broaden our sense of God’s inclusive family and help equip us to build a culture of peace and nonviolence for all God’s children.
