Two Christians will speak of their journeys of faith in Israel-Palestine at an online event hosted later this month.

Journeys of Faith in Israel and Palestine features Linda Ramsden and Omar Haramy.

Linda will describe how her encounters with Palestinians took her on a faith journey that has led her to become Director of ICAHD UK (Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions).

Omar Haramy, of the Sabeel Ecumenical Liberation Theology Center in East Jerusalem, will speak of the journeys that were forced upon Palestinians in 1948, the crisis of faith that resulted, and the response of Sabeel as it lives a theology that stresses God's love is for all people.

The event is hosted by the working group for Israel-Palestine of the Archdiocese's Caritas, Justice & Peace Commission and takes place on Zoom on Wednesday 26 August, 7:30pm to 8:30pm. Click here to register and you will receive the details you need to join the meeting.
