I am honored to be speaking at the upcoming Holocaust remembrance event at Devar Emet, a local Messianic (read: they believe Jesus is the Messiah) Jewish synagogue in Skokie, Illinois, on April 30, 201.
The featured speaker will be Steven Grund, a survivor of Nazi oppression in Poland.
As for my part, the plan is for a couple of other Christian pastors and myself to each give a short, non-political spiel on why it is important to stand with the Jewish people against antisemitism.
Please feel free to come out if you can.
And if you are a follower of the Messiah yourself, pray that I will speak well, represent the Lord and Park Community Church in a faithful way, and in some small way, even contribute to the efforts toward bridging the gap between Christians and Jewish folks in the North Side and Suburbs.
