Gather for a virtual pilgrimage to the Holy Land: Five Sunday afternoons in Lent
|Maine pilgrims meet in a cave with our first guest, Daoud Nasser, (second from right) at Tent of Nations outside of Bethlehem|
As they considered how to share their experiences with their fellow parishioners here in Maine, they lighted upon the idea to bring the remarkable Palestinian Christians and Muslims they met to Maine...by way of online conversations.
All are invited on a 45 minute virtual pilgrimage on Sunday afternoons at 3 p.m. Time will be allowed for Q&A at the end of each presentation.
Daoud Nasser of Tent of Nations: The context of occupation
Walid Abu Alhalaweh, Hebron Rehabilitation Committee: Daily life under occupation
Father Fadi Diab, rector of St. Andrew's Episcopal Church, Ramallah: The Church's Response to occupation and its call to ministry
Violette Khoury, Director of Sabeel Nazareth: Life as a Palestinian Christian in Israel
Sam Bahour, Muslim Palestinian-American businessman: Economic realities for under occupation, especially for young Palestinians
All that is needed to participate is a trusty Internet connection and a webcam or phone.
More about each speaker and the organization or church they represent, as well as links and directions to participate in the conversations, will be posted soon on the New Northeast blog www.newnortheast.me and in upcoming editions of The Dio Log.
Three test conversations are offered prior to the Sunday Conversations for those who would like to try out a Zoom web meeting in advance.
