Responding to the Cry for Hope from Palestinian Christians, FOSNA is inviting Christian leaders across the U.S. to commit their congregations to "Preach Palestine" on November 29th by incorporating Palestine into their worship service. The goal is to encourage 100 churches to incorporate Palestine in their Advent worship service with the Keep Awake: A Call to Preach Palestine initiative! November 29th is the first Sunday in Advent, the Sunday after Thanksgiving, and International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. The co-leader of Friends of Sabeel North America (FOSNA) Clergy and Seminary Action Council is Allison Tanner, a two-time graduate from Berkeley School of Theology with a MA (’98) and MDiv (’00). She also received her PhD (’11) from GTU with an affiliation to Berkeley School of Theology. An outreach guide to promote the project has been developed.
