Easter in Jerusalem

This Easter, join our Sabeel elders from Jerusalem as they share lessons of liberation and spiritual survival in the midst of continued dispossession, health crises and international chaos. Let us gather together to remember that just as Jesus died on the cross to reveal the eternal, divinity is revealed in the midst of physical destruction.

The live simulcast of prayers, readings, and hymns is intended to bring hearts closer together as closures continue to separate us. We know that whether in person or online, whenever two or three assemble, God is there with us.

The service will commence on Holy Saturday, April 11 at 9 am PST, 12 pm EST, and 7 pm in Palestine. We will send call in information after registration.
All are welcome!
