Tuesday, November 1 at 6:30 p.m., Creative 360 will host Cathrine Abuamsha of Beit Jala, Palestine who will deliver a powerful presentation on her life as a Palestinian living in occupied territories. Cathrine is a 24 year-old Palestinian woman who is of the Greek Orthodox faith tradition. She will describe her experiences and the non-violent resistance movement in face of the military Israeli occupation.
Born in Bethlehem, Catherine has faced a lifetime of occupation. Her father is a YMCA director in the Bethlehem area. Her mother an English teacher. Cathrine’s siblings have a wide variety of vocations—from civil engineering to business. She is in training to be a lawyer, and is also part of the youth ecumenical movement in Palestine.
Cathrine has trained with the Youth Ecumenical Institute of the Middle East, involving youth from seven Arab countries in choosing to be open to the experiences, cultures and witnesses of other Christians. She comes to Midland as a Mission to the U.S.A. (M.U.S.A.) mission partner prepared to talk about both the issues all Arab Christians face in their respective contexts, as well as the particular issues facing Palestinian Christians today in light of the Israeli Occupation.
There is no charge for this event.
