SPEAKER: Gilbert Carthigasu
DATE: 25 Aug
TIME: 7:30pm - 10:00pm

Jerusalem is the most contested piece of real estate on the planet. The Arabs and the Jews each claim it as their own. It is a major stumbling block to Middle-east peace and the United Nations has suggested that they control the city.
What is it about this city that demands so much attention from the world? In this talk we explore God's design for the city and in doing so we are able to understand why there is such a fuss over it.
