Dedication of Dar al-Kalima Health & Wellness Center in Bethlehem

On Friday, September 5, 2003 the Dar al-Kalima Health and Wellness Center celebrated its dedication and grand opening in an outdoor ceremony on the school grounds. Bishop Younan, Rev. Dr. Mitri Raheb and Dr. As’ad Ramlawi, director of Preventive and Community Medicine at the Palestinian Ministry of Health spoke to the many guests from Palestine, the United States and the Nordic countries. Wheat Ridge Ministries from the U.S., a major contributor to the Wellness Center, was represented by a delegation of eighteen people; Mr. Gregg Smith and Dr. Richard Bimler addressed the audience. Performing were karate students from Dar al-Kalima and musicians from the community. Dar al-Kalima students sang the school anthem and released many baloons. The Health and Wellness Center tour following the program revealed exercise and training rooms, classrooms, and a beatiful swimming pool. “As the Lutheran World Federation (LWF) has the theme ‘For the healing of the world’, such a Health and Wellness Center shows that the Lutheran Church’s theology is to care for the whole perons, mentally, physically and spiritually,” Bishop Younan said.
