At The Crossroads Conference in Jerusalem – 20 May 2014

Last week, from May 13-16, the second bi-annual “At The Crossroads” conference was held in Jerusalem at Christ Church inside Jaffa Gate.  The conference did not focus on either politics or theology, but on carrying out the Great Commission in a triangular region in the middle of the Earth inspired by the Word of God in Isaiah 19: 23-25:  the highway from Egypt to Assyria (the whole area of its former empire), with Israel in between as the bridge of … Continue reading
