Second Week of Advent 2021 – Encounter the Holy Land with Reverend Munther Isaac
When faced with hard things, do you ever feel a silence from God? Does it make it challenging to carry on? Palestinian Christians today are living through multiple hard things, yet Rev. Munther Isaac invites us to receive comfort in the simple prayer of ‘Speak Lord…’, addressing the silence head-on. And there is so much more. Watch the 12-minute reflection on Isaiah 40 from Bethlehem. An excellent hope-filled gift from the Holy Land for the 2nd Sunday of Advent. Rev. Munther Isaac pastors the Christmas Lutheran Church in Bethlehem and is the Academic Dean of Bethlehem Bible College. He Is also the director of the Christ at the Checkpoint conferences, and a Board member of Kairos Palestine.
Jean Zaru – a Holy Saturday Sermon
|On the weekend of June 26/27, Canadian Friends of Sabeel invites you to Encounter the Holy Land through the words of Jean Zaru, a Palestinian Christian who lives in Ramallah, outside of Jerusalem. She is a Quaker who has served on the board of the Sabeel Ecumenical Liberation Theology Center.|
Jean’s reflection, which was part of the FOSNA-Sabeel Easter Saturday service, underscores the message of Easter hope as central to the Gospel and focuses on the role of women in the Gospel and the lament of Jesus for the suffering of women; an inspiring accompaniment to the lectionary readings for this weekend.
