November 4 – November 14
This is an invitation to participate in a 10 day pilgrimage to Israel/Palestine in November. It is an opportunity to see both the Holy Sites and the effects of the Occupation on all who like in that troubled land.
Travel this beautiful land of Palestine/Israel experiencing the places where Jesus lived and taught. Visit the holy sites in Nazareth, Bethlehem, Jerusalem and the Galilee.
Learn about the extraordinary resilience of the Palestinian people living under occupation.
Meet United Church of Canada partners-Jewish, Muslim, and Christian,
who are working non-violently for peace, justice and human rights.
Hear the stories of people whose families lived in this land for generations.
Ponder biblical passages in the Garden of Gethsemane and on the Mount of the Beatitudes asking how they relate to us today.
Gaze down on Jerusalem as we consider those who have conquered this land over three millennia and how each has treated the inhabitants.
