Peacemaking in Israel and Palestine

Eleven of us easily moved through passport control at the Tel Aviv airport.

One did not. Although born in Chicago, Miryam is Muslim and has a Palestinian name.

So we waited while Miryam was questioned by Israeli authorities.

For about two hours we waited.

PPF Statement on Mid East Crisis

Once again we hear Jesus’ cry:
If you, even you, had only recognized on this day the things that make for peace!
Through tears we grieve and pray for those in Lebanon, Israel and Palestine

who live in fear for their lives
who are shelled by bombs or rockets
who are captured for bargaining
who are imprisoned without trial

and for all those who have lost loved ones.
We pray for those who take the ways of violence to address the violence they have experienced, that they may find the ways that make for peace.
