As members of Group 45 packed our bags to leave our posts as Ecumenical Accompaniers (EAs) in Palestine and Israel, we were told by our Jerusalem staff that our job does not really end with the completion of our 3 months of service. We simply switch “hats” and become Ecumenical Advocates ~ still EAs … It is true ~ Stories are swirling in my head and heart. They want a hearing. And I want to tell them ~ This means that I will keep writing ~ I hope that you will keep reading.
I look forward to continuing the “conversation” we have begun ~ here or perhaps in person. My first public presentation will be in Whitehorse (Yukon!) on January 18. If you are interested in providing an opportunity and venue to engage others in this ongoing work for justice and peace, please contact me by posting a comment on this blog.
May this new year further the great turning ~ may it bring new beginnings, new opportunities, new openings, new ways to love and live together ~ Thank you for reading and responding, for caring and sharing, for your commitment to a just peace and to things that matter. Together we can make a difference.
