“Towards Jerusalem”–Sabeel’s new Cornerstone issue
The Sabeel Ecumenical Liberation Theology Center in Jerusalem is happy to announce that its spring issue of Cornerstone “Towards Jerusalem” is now available. It includes Sabeel’s Bible study reflection on Jesus turning his face towards Jerusalem and highlights both the suffering and sumud (steadfastness) of the Palestinians living in the city.
In its first ever staff and volunteer Bible study reflection published in the Cornerstone, Sabeel asks:
“Who, at present, is setting their face towards Jerusalem? Who is willing to take up the cross of Jesus and speak truth to power? Who has the resolve to enter into the center of this issue, into the center of power and speak Jesus’ message of love and justice and peace? Can the holiness of Jerusalem be retained apart from truth and justice?”
