Anne Romney will present at Friends Forever International in Durham about her Compassionate Listening Journey to Israel and Palestine (this past October) through sharing the personal narratives from people they met.
These stories from Israelis and Palestinians living in the West Bank and Gaza provide insight into the human experience, too often overshadowed by the larger political view of “the conflict.” They represent people who face major challenges on a daily basis and some who find courageous ways to reach across and work with “the other.”
If you would like to join us, please RSVP by Monday, Feb 19 to [email protected]
