The Christian Council of Sweden represents the various Christian traditions in Sweden and includes Lutheran, Free Evangelical, Roman Catholic and Orthodox churches.  As part of their mission to work together for peace and reconciliation, and to promote global issues of justice, a study group representing member churches visited Bethlehem Bible College on March 27 to listen to our perspectives on current issues in order to understand the situation in Palestine in more depth, and to learn how to connect with and empower Palestinian Christians.  After touring the college they met with the president, Dr. Jack Sara, and following lunch with the college faculty and staff, attended a lecture given by Dr. Bishara Awad, founder and president emeritus.   We praise God that Bethlehem Bible College is becoming more well-known in its role of empowering Palestinian Christians and giving them a voice.
