“Bearing Witness” Diocesan-wide Offering

Tuesdays, August 6-September 3  |  12 – 1:30 p.m.  |  Zoom

Bearing Witness” is the new, free, video-based study program from the American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem (AFEDJ) that shares the stories of people living in Palestine and Israel and the remarkable ministries of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem that bring hope and healing in this volatile part of the world. 

It is a particularly timely offering for those who want to have a deeper understanding and appreciation of the dynamics, gifts and challenges of belonging to a land that is shared by many faiths, ethnicities and nationalities. It’s is a way of first listening, praying and discerning how God might be calling us to be in solidarity with our sisters and brothers in Jerusalem, Gaza, the Galilee, the West Bank and the entire area where Jesus lived, taught, and gave himself up to the glory of God and for the sake of creating beloved community on earth. It models what it means to walk in love in one of the hardest regions on earth, and recalibrates our hearts and our ministries in the process. 

This first diocesan-wide offering is ideal for anyone who simply wants to explore the course, or would like to experience it with the goal of becoming a course facilitator. Registering once will provide you access to all sessions.
