Sabeel 1st Young Adult Gathering 2020

Come,  Rise Up Now Bethlehem, Jerusalem, Nazareth, and more!

Today, we at the Sabeel Ecumenical Theology Center in Jerusalem announce the First International Young Adult Gathering which will be held 17th - 25th June 2020.  Cost is $1,100 USD.

Spend time with Palestinian communities.  Fellowship with young adults from around the world.  Take part in nonviolence initiatives.  Learn how to KUMI.

In this time of great polarization, fundamentalism and grave injustice, we are seeing a generation of young people rise who are longing for theologies that liberate and bring hope to the oppressed, the marginalized, and the broken-hearted. Such theologies have developed among oppressed Christians worldwide, including among Palestinians. These theologies have inspired strength, hope, and a continual commitment to Jesus’ teachings of a just peace and nonviolent resistance to all forms of oppression.

Start: 21st June 2020 11:00 am End: 21st June 2020 12:00 pm
