These are days in which we truly need to remember to ‘cast our cares upon Him for He cares for us’ (1 Peter 5:7),” shared Tal, the Director of Dor Haba (Rising Generation) ministry in Jerusalem as she reflected on how life has changed during the pandemic. “Another favourite verse of mine this past week has been, ‘But I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child is my soul within me’ (Psalm 131:2)
The Dor Haba Collaborative
Dor Haba has had to re-imagine their ministry during these difficult times. One of these new developments is Dor Haba Collaboratives where the team goes to a local Congregation and works with a smaller group of teenagers rather than the big national events Dor Haba used to run. A collaboration took place not far from Haifa, a coastal city in the North of Israel. A smaller number of local teenagers, according to COVID-19 guidelines, came together for three days of worship, songwriting, fellowship, teaching, and Kingdom creativity.
“They spent three days together learning, playing, eating, writing songs, recording, and making art. The depth of relationships reached in such a short amount of time was amazing,” shared Tal.
“The messages were all around the theme of being “in sync with His Heart”. What it means to know God’s Heart, to walk closely with Him, to receive creativity from Him, and to offer a sacrifice of praise to Him.
“Many of them responded to the Lord in a very significant way. They were very open and honest in the times of prayer we had about struggles they’ve been facing.
On the last evening, the Collaborative had a worship time on the beach boardwalk. They played the songs they had written about the Lord. Their joy was evident, drawing many passers-by to stop, listen and begin conversations.
