July 30: Journeys of the Heart: Thoughts on a Recent Visit to Palestine
Facilitators: Rev. Lyndon Harris and Maria Lund
Is peace possible in the Middle East? What might that look like? Our presenters recently traveled to Palestine on a cultural exchange coordinated by the Amos Trust (a UK foundation) in partnership with singer/songwriter Martyn Joseph’s charity, “Let Yourself Trust” (also UK). Every day, except one, was spent in occupied territory: Bethlehem, the ancient city of Hebron, Jesus’ hometown of Nazareth, and the Judean desert. Join us to hear them tell of their eye opening and life changing experiences.
