Webinar March 23 kl 19.00

 The Passover celebration is the culmination of the Christians in Jerusalem. Usually, local Christians with visitors from all over the world are crowded in the narrow alleys. This year it will be in a different way.

In our webinar we tell about the “ordinary” Easter celebration in Jerusalem – about the walk on Palm Sunday with many thousands of participants, the foot-washing ceremony in the oriental churches and the most spectacular: “the holy fire” in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. Just like the Christmas celebration, Easter is celebrated at different times in the three great Christian traditions.

KJELL JONASSON, pastor of SvK and for many years the Church of Sweden’s envoy to Israel / Palestine and the Church of Sweden’s Middle East secretary, participates in the webinar. For many years, Kjell has also been a tour guide in the Holy Land. CLAES-GÖRAN YDREFORS, former pastor of the Immanuel Church and travel educator in Bilda with travels in the Holy Land. The moderator is GÖRAN GUNNER, pastor, Ph.D., who has traveled in the region for more than thirty years, written guidebooks and delved into issues related to the region.

The webinar is conducted in Swedish.

The webinar takes place as a collaboration between Immanuel Church, Åbyberg Church in Vallentuna and the Bilda study association.
