The Tend of Nations

A short film by Porter Speakman, Jr. for the “Christ at the Checkpoint Conference 2012”. The Tent of Nations is the story of a Palestinian Christian family and their struggle to maintain their family land while being surrounded and harassed by Israeli settlements. The Tent of Nations under the motto “We refuse to be enemies” looks to find peaceful ways for co-existence with their neighbors while blessing the community they live in.

This is one of the sites I have visited during my recent trip in Palestine.
The Daouds are Palestinian Lutherans. Their motto is ‘we refuse to be enemies’.
