    Preach Palestine on Nov. 29

    October 26, 2020 / By UNY Conference Task Force on Peace with Justice in Palestine/Israel

    Friends of Sabeel North America is inviting congregations to "Preach Palestine" on Nov. 29 by incorporating Palestine into their worship service on the first week of Advent. As your UNY Task Force on Peace with Justice in Palestine/Israel, we are deeply committed to human rights for the Palestinian people.  

    Sunday, Nov. 29 is the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. Friends of Sabeel North America has prepared some excellent resources that congregations might use.  There are prayers, litanies, children's stories, music, and even sermon possibilities to choose from.

    This is also a great way to respond to the most recent "Cry of Hope" from our Christian brothers and sisters in Palestine.

    Thank you for your prayerful consideration of our request to "Preach Palestine" in some way in your Church during Advent.
