Holy Space 10: Aseel Bannoura

If you’re tuning in for the first time at this intersection between faith and God for anyone converted, unconverted or under conversion…we’re in the middle of an Advent series exploring “holy space.” You’re invited to share your own experiences of the Holy, and I’ll republish your reflections at the end of the week. In the meantime, photojournalist Katie Archibald-Woodward is taking us through the Holy Land with some of her own reflections on the holy moments she found there…

I sit down with Aseel Bannoura.  Her face is cheerful, her eyes are bright, her words are astoundingly articulate.  Her eloquent English allows her to be perfectly frank with me as I start to ask her questions.  Her frankness alone takes me by surprise, but even more striking is the lack of bitterness or anger in her tone.  She just tells it to me straight.  Even with a whiff of humor now and then. For more, see Katie’s blog.
