Last week, Friends of Sabeel North America (FOSNA) announced the passing of one of the members of their Board of Trustees – Nahida Halaby Gordon. Nahida was born in Jerusalem in 1939 and fled Palestine to the United States in 1948 due to the Nakba. Nahida served FOSNA in an exemplary manner, offering not only her insights and experience as a Palestinian American woman, but also her expertise in finance and management. Nahida will be sorely missed by the Sabeel community.  

• God of mercy, comfort Nahida’s family and friends as they mourn. We pray for your mercy to be shown to all those grieving. We thank you for working through Nahida’s life, a life committed to witnessing to your love, justice, peace, and liberation. Lord, help us honour Nahida’s memory by striving for excellence, kindness, and generosity that she exemplified in her life.  

Lord in your mercy… hear our prayer
