Arab Spring continues to bring hope for reform to the Middle East and Northern Africa. But these revolutionary movements are bringing violence and turmoil while exposing the fault lines between religious and political groups. This is true especially in Syria, where a violent civil war rages, and Lebanon, where tensions threaten to unravel its civil society. In June, three people from Fond du Lac’s Memorial Baptist Church were among a group that visited Beirut and learned about reform’s toll on human rights. Led by Pastor Brian Hastings, the group will share their experiences from the trip, give an overview of the situations in Syria and Lebanon and open up a dialog about the complex situation in the Middle East today.
