Episode 36 of the podcast features Martin Brooks, the Acting President of Peace Catalyst International!
Martin was recently appointed the Interim President of Peace Catalyst International. Peace Catalyst is located in 15 cities and three countries and focuses on greater understanding between Muslims and Christians.
Drawing on the teachings and examples of Jesus, Martin has worked with local churches and mosques to create safe spaces to ask questions and build greater trust between Christians and Muslims. He has organized dialogue events, service projects, iftar meals and “Peace Feasts” with Palestinians, Syrians, Turks, Pakistanis, Somalis, Kurds, and Iranians. He works with city officials, refugee agencies, local clergy and interfaith groups to seek the peace of the city and mutual thriving for all.
