Jerusalem – In a program written by women in Slovenia, The World Day of Prayer is celebrated around the world in diverse communities of women. The women of the Arabic-speaking congregation at Redeemer Jerusalem participate in the annual ecumenical worship. The Palestinian worship was organized by Mrs. Ida Haddad and Mrs. Nora Carmi.

The theme, Come – Everything is Ready,  is an invitation based on the parable of Jesus to come to the feast and proclaim the kingdom of love.

A table was set with bread, wine, water, salt, a vase and a ceramic bowl as found in the traditional meal gatherings of Slovenia.

Throughout the service there was local music, a call to prayer and the retelling of Slovenian women’s stories who were invited to the table in the face of difficulties and struggles.
