In a world increasingly characterised by conflict and polarisation, what might the ministry of reconciliation to which Christians are called look like? In order to explore this, the British Trust for Tantur is planning a Pilgrimage of Reconciliation for young adults in leadership roles within the church.
It will be hosted at the Tantur Ecumenical Institute in Jerusalem and will offer participants a variety of experiences of the Holy Land, its history, and the challenges of the present situation. Such a setting will help us to reflect on reconciliation in our own context, and in the world around us.
The pilgrimage is planned for Spring 2024 (Covid restrictions allowing), and we will continue to journey and reflect together further through one or more follow-up events in the UK.
If you exercise some sort of leadership role within a church context, and will be between the ages of 21 and 35 on 31st March 2024, you are invited to express your interest. Early in 2023 we will then invite all those who have expressed an interest to make an application to be part of the journey, and a group of around 30 pilgrims will be chosen by the trustees and notified in the summer of that year.
Please visit www.tanturbritishtrust.org.uk/pilgrimage to submit your details if you wish to express your interest.
