World Week for Peace in Palestine and Israel

Bridges, Not Walls

World Week for Peace in Palestine and Israel – 20 to 26 September 20 to 26. *

‘For He is our peace; in his flesh, He has made both groups into one and has broken down the dividing wall, that is the hostility between us’ Ephesians 2. v 14 (NRSV)

A symbol of division, the Separation Wall challenges God’s plan to break down what divides us. We must face this Wall as a source of suffering and confusion for the people of Palestine and the people of Israel, and as a stumbling block on the path of peace.
