End of year update

Dear friends

It has been a very big month for Palestinians - with both the attacks on Gaza and Palestine being recognised at the United Nations as a non-member State.

For more on this we would commend to you both the the Christian leaders statement during recent attacks on Gaza  and the 100 Christian leaders’ statement by 100 Palestinian Christian leaders supporting Palestine’s bid for membership in the United Nations.  In Australia the Australia Palestine Advocacy Network has been speaking publically and lobbying on both these situations, and we would recommend their website to find out more.

The Ecumenical Working Group has been working hard on clarifying our own mission and vision as we plan a significant outreach campaign to churches in the next 6 months.  We hope you'll join us in spreading the word at that time. 

We are in the midst of building a new website and would love your help.  We hope our website will educate and inspire Australian Christians about Palestine.  So please send us links to books or videos you've found inspiring, theological work on this issue, and copies of any reports or blogs you might have written from Palestine (with photos too!).

May you have a blessed Christmas.
