Christ at the Checkpoint is running a blogger’s contest offering various prizes to those willing to help publicize their upcoming Peace Conference. I’m happy to help even without the promise of a potential windfall because:
1- I believe that there should be peace in the Middle East and anything that furthers that goal is worth mentioning.
2- I got a bit of ‘hate mail’ the other day because I was supporting (in a previous post) the Christ at the Checkpoint project (which my emailer described as a racist and anti-semitic project). When I see honest efforts for peace demonized by Christian Zionists I’m naturally motivated to promote them even more.
And 3- If you can attend the Conference, you really should go. Here’s what the Conference is REALLY about (in case you too have had the Christian Zionists stoop to deception)
The aim of the Christ at the Checkpoint conference is to provide an opportunity for Evangelical Christians to prayerfully seek a proper awareness of issues of peace, justice, and reconciliation in the context of the realities on the ground in the Palestinian Territories. It will also provide a platform for serious engagement with Christian Zionism and an open forum for ongoing dialogue between all positions within the Evangelical theological spectrum.
Even if you can’t go, you can pray.
