Along with Tantur Ecumenical Institute and Church of the Redeemer, Sabeel co-sponsored a book launch for Father Michael Lapsley’s book on March 26th, 2017. His book is called Redeeming the Past: My Journey from Freedom Fighter to Healer, and is about his personal experiences. Fr. Lapsley joined the ANC after being exiled by the South African apartheid government. After surviving a letter bomb attack by the South African government, he went on to found the Institute for Healing of Memories in Cape Town. There was simultaneous translation of the event from English to Arabic. About 45 people attended.
