2016 Clergy and Wives Retreat

Sabeel’s annual ecumenical clergy and wives retreat met at Stella Maris in Haifa on October 24th-26th, 2016. Thirty-eight people gathered to learn about and discuss the theme: “The Other…Blessing or Curse?” A variety of speakers preached on Luke 6:33, “If you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same.” In the language of the Bible, the Other is not only our relative, but also strangers both close to and far away from us. The retreat ended with a visit to Magdala, Domus Galilaeae, and Elaboun.
