Pathways to Peace for the Holy Land


Recently I returned to the Holy Land for the seventh time in 30 years and spent three months living in Jerusalem with a 23 strong interdenominational group from the USA, UK, Australia and Ireland at the Tantur Ecumenical Institute. The program involved lectures, field trips, daily shared prayer and extensive travel throughout the country meeting with different groups and individuals from Jewish settlers to Bedouin desert dwellers and included several days in the monastery of St.Catherine in Sinai, Egypt. We witnessed and listened to peoples fears and stories of the injustices they have endured or still suffer in the land of Christ’s birth leading us to reflect on the possibilities for lasting peace in this outwardly strong but inwardly uncertain society.
