An event about peace in the Middle East and the Balfour Declaration
Presented by peace activist
Dr Sherry Joyce
This is a three-week series delving into understanding the Middle East from different perspectives and our relationship to the Middle East via the Episcopal Church and Memphis. Each week will build on the last. The first session was a survey on Islam and its core beliefs, taught by Memphis’ own Dr. Nabil Bayakly, an Imam and teacher at Memphis Theological Seminary. The second week will examine the core conflict in the Middle East, via a panel discussion with local people with connections to the Middle East. The panel includes Dr. Bayakly and Sherry Joyce, an elder in the Presbyterian Church and a long time advocate for Middle East understanding. The third session, led by parishioner Alice Shands and clergy, will reflect on the Episcopal Church’s resolutions concerning the Middle East and Calvary’s potential to support an ongoing dialogue about the Middle East.
