An Interfaith Trip Through the Holy Land!

School of Theology and Ministry (STM) Core Faculty member Erica Lee Martin, Ph.D. and STM alum (2016) Corey Passons, MDiv led a thirteen-day Interfaith Tour of Israel and Jordan April 22-May 6, 2019. The tour group was comprised of STM Alumni and members of local churches, synagogues, and the Community for Interfaith Celebration in Olympia, WA. The group toured historical, religious and environmental sites in the North of Israel Jordan, the West Bank, and finally Jerusalem, discussing each participants personal faith story, approaches to Interfaith engagement, the many faiths we encountered on the way (including differing forms of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, and the Druze), and the rich history and meaning of the Holy Land that brings these together.
