New Story Leadership Event

Venue

Parish Hall

Details

Date:
July 1, 2018
Time:
11:00 am - 12:00 pm

On Sunday, July 1, immediately following the 10 am service, St. John’s will host the inspiring 2018 team of ten young Israeli and Palestinian students participating in the New Story Leadership (NSL) program this summer. We are thrilled to welcome back NSL participants to St. John’s. We’ve invited them to our church several times over the last couple of years, and now are deepening our relationship; parishioner Nancy Adams is hosting one of the students this year and NSL would welcome other St. John’s members hosting students in the future.

Each NSL student brings a story of conflict with “the other;” a desire for a different, more peaceful future; and a commitment to build programs in the region that bring together Israeli and Palestinian people in a wide variety of fields – thereby creating a new “us.” Their goal is to create a new story of action and responsibility – leadership as the art of change.

We hope you will join us on July 1 for this inspiring program, in which the NSL students will share their stories of building interfaith relationships, followed by Q&A and refreshments. For more information on NSL, visit www.newstoryleadership.org.
