Wednesday, September 27th
Once again John Knox is delighted to host Presbyterian World Mission Co-Workers, this time from Reverends Scott & Elmarie Parker. Come hear first-hand, the Church’s work in the Middle East where Scott serves as PC(USA) Associate for Ecumenical Partnerships working with the Middle East Council of Churches & Elmarie is a PC (USA) Associate Regional Liaison to Church Partners in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon since 2013.
Come for supper & conversation at 6pm; then Scott and Elmarie will lead a discussion regarding current conditions in the region where they work and live, along with how these conditions (including ISIS) are impacting PCUSA Partners and their continuing work of worship and ministry. Though there is much over which to be deeply concerned, there are also stories of hope to be heard and shared. Bring your questions and come ready to hear the witness received first hand from local church leaders on the ground in these areas of conflict and chaos.
The Parkers are members of Eastminster Presbytery in Ohio; earning their respective degrees in Tacoma, WA (Elmarie), Sioux Falls, SD (Scott) & master degrees at Fuller Seminary in Pasadena, CA. Together, Elmarie and Scott enjoy time with their nephews and niece, road trips, trying new foods, playing games, good movies and a variety of music. They have also enjoyed the company of feline fur kids since 2004. Since moving to Beirut two Lebanese cats have joined their household. Born in Florida, Elmarie spent her toddler years in South Africa, and the remainder of her growing-up years on a Christmas tree farm in the rugged hills of Silverton, Oregon. Scott was born and raised in the suburbs of Omaha, Nebraska.
