Sixteen ELCA young adults from all over the US are in the Holy Land right now visiting holy sites, experiencing everyday realities and meeting their Palestinian sisters and brothers in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land and others working for peace with justice in the Holy Land. They plan to go back to the US and plan similar trips when they return.
Follow the trip's blog at http://peacenotwalls.wordpress.com/.
From the blog:
What do you get when you mix 16 ELCA young adults from all over the United States who have flown to Israel and Palestine (with a quick stop in Jordan for a dedication of a church), asking them to learn more about Israel and Palestine in the context of their shared Christian faith, to grow in their leadership skills, connect with other young adults engaged in social justice, get involved with the Peace Not Walls Campaign of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and blog about it?
You get us! (and a ridiculously long sentence).
The sweet 16 are in the midst of a two week experience of a lifetime and will be using this blog to share their reflections along the way.
Thanks for joining us along the journey! leave a comment, lift up a prayer, and spread the word! The opinions expressed are the opinions of the individuals writing them and not necessarily the opinions of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
