Visit Peacemaking Communities in Palestine-Israel
Our lives changed on an annual fact-finding pilgrimage to Israel-Palestine with the Friends of Sabeel Colorado. If you want to learn more about present conditions in the wounded Holy Land, join the upcoming Spring Witness Visit, May 10-18, 2016.
Our friend Joy Lapp, who guided our 2007 trip, will also lead this year’s visit. Her experience, contacts, knowledge and compassion, are invaluable. Rev. Naim Ateek, co-founder of Sabeel, an ecumenical grass roots Palestinian Christian movement working for peace in the Middle East, joins Joy in leading this year’s trip. Read Fr. Dave Denny’s introduction to Sabeel as a Spring of Hope.
And to get a taste of what you may experience on this unique pilgrimage, read Tessa Bielecki’s Jerusalem, Jerusalem, a lyrical and heartfelt account of our 2007 visit.
