Peace Not Walls (PNW) 2020 Virtual Series

For six Saturdays in a row, beginning on Saturday, April 25th, PNW participants in the U.S. and partners in the Middle East will engage in weekly conversations about how the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting the Lutheran ministries in the Holy Land and how the Lutheran World Federation-Jerusalem Program and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land (ELCJHL) are responding in order to continue their vital medical, ecclesiastical and educational work.  In addition, these virtual meetings will provide an opportunity for participants and partners to discuss aspects of the ongoing Israeli occupation, especially the expansion of Israeli settlements and other human rights violations occurring in the shadow of the pandemic.


All are welcome to join us – please share this invitation widely!
