Children of Bethlehem - Claremont Presbyterian Church

7_Never Forget_KatieA-W_72 ppi.jpg

Join us at Claremont Presbyterian Church Sunday, January 6 at 9 a.m. to learn about the children living in the beloved city of Bethlehem. January 6th marks the celebration of Christmas Eve for Orthodox Christians around the world as well as Epiphany for many others. As millions remember the Christ Child born this day in Bethlehem 2,000 years ago, it is also a time to consider the many children born in Bethlehem today.

We will meet in Classroom 1.  As you look at the big red front doors of the sanctuary (from the front patio), Classroom 1 is directly to the left of the sanctuary, just down the few steps.

Labyrinth Walk: Carrying An Experience in Sacred Space

Checkpoint 300_KatieA-W.jpg

Labyrinth Walk: Carrying An Experience in Sacred Space, Dec. 11, Tuesday 7-8:30 

November 12, 2018 | Author admin

This walk is in conjunction with the multi-media exhibit “Through the Checkpoint”. You can experience the exhibit and walk the labyrinth, just experience the exhibit, or just walk the labyrinth. Julie Roberts-Fronk will facilitate an introduction for those who want to engage in the Labyrinth walk. The focus will be how we engage sacred space and practice, like the Labyrinth, in a way that helps us process and pray an experience, like experiencing the stories and picture of people in “Through the Checkpoint”. The Labyrinth is a sacred space to which we can bring brokenness: our brokenness and the world’s brokenness. It is a spiritual practice in which we can find the wholeness of God guiding us. The Labyrinth will remain open until 8:30. Once your walk is finished you are free to stay in the space, view the exhibit a first or second time, or conclude and return home.

Sunday, Nov. 25, 9 a.m. - "Bethlehem Through The Lives of Children" Talk, Claremont United Church of Christ, 233 W Harrison Ave., Claremont, CA 91711

Kinda (pronounced: Kin-da) explains her portrait (translated from Arabic by Natasha Hanna):

Kinda: Okay, I drew here that we are crying a lot and we are really sad, cause we are living under the occupation and we need freedom and peace.  At the same time, I love to swim and play futbol.  In the future I wish to become an engineer, teach swimming, also I wish that Palestine become a happy country and me as well.

Katie: imagine you are talking with a friend who lives far away. What is something you would like them to know about living Bethlehem?

Kinda: I would love to say that Palestine is really a very beautiful country although we are under occupation, but Palestine is the most beautiful country. 

Katie: What’s one of your fears? Something you’re afraid of? 

Kinda: I’m afraid that one day the Israeli soldiers will take one of my family members, because I do not likeand I cannot live without my family.   

Katie: And, what’s one of your dreams?

Kinda: To become an engineer.
