Reconciliation Programs
Our context in Palestine and Israel provides a challenge to serve as agents of justice, reconciliation and peace. The sacred Scriptures of the three great religions with deep roots in this land provide resources for reconciliation as well as texts that have been appropriated to justify conflict and reinforce suspicion. St George’s College works with other local organisations to promote interfaith engagement, to seek religious resources for justice and peace, and to promote reconciliation.

In this course, a community of observant Jews, practicing Muslims and Christians from around the world will live together a an interfaith community at St. George’s College. Over eights days we will encounter the Holy Land together, explore sites sacred to each tradition, welcome the inquiry of each other, and by mutual interest learn of the One God revealed uniquely  in each of the Abrahamic faiths.  Aided by local religious leaders  and skilled guides participants will reflect on their own Fatih and practice, gain new insights into sister traditions and form friendships that will support greater interfaith understanding in our communities back home.  13770502_10153826190291915_5295169140631022022_nThe course strengthens faith while encouraging new insights, perspectives and friendships. The aim is for participants to return home resourced to promote Christian-Muslim-Jewish  understanding in their respective communities.

Availability: This course was originally designed for U.K. communities. However, for this March 2019 course, we encourage interfaith practitioners from other Western countries to join us. Registration may be restricted so that we can seek  a reasonable balance in the numbers of Christian, Jewish and Muslim participants. Please  contact the Registrar before enrolling for this course.
