How we live the joy of the resurrectio
On April 27th Sabeel held a community forum at its Jerusalem office with guest speaker Father Archimandrite Jack Noble Abed of the Melkite Church in Taybeh village. As many as 31 women joined for the event to learn about how to connect resurrection to their daily lives, and to death, which is actually resurrection and life.
In Palestinian culture, women often wear black for months and years while mourning a loved one who has passed away. However, Archimandrite Jack told the Sabeel women that we must have a different outlook on death, and see it as the beginning of another life (resurrection). The women listened to this liberating way of thinking about death and shared their stories about times of pain and grief in their lives when they experienced Jesus Christ.
