The delegation is sending some beautiful posts full of marvelous photos from their travels in the West Bank. You may view their posts at their Tumblr blog site: www.tiffinpalestine.tumblr.com We encourage you to check their site periodically in the coming days. They’ll return on May 17.
Matt tells us:
“The faces of the Occupation. Everywhere we have gone in the West Bank, Palestinians have taken us into their homes, fed us, and made us laugh and cry. The experience has been moving.
“God gave us eyes to see the truth,” Amal told us over mint tea infused with sage from the Tent of Nations, above Bethlehem. When asked the solution to Palestinian/Israeli problems, Sami told us that we must begin with ourselves—what is within us, and why can’t peace start with the personal experience? Incredible lesson from the Intifada, incursions, and checkpoints. Everyone we have met has said the same—we are not out for revenge, we just want to live.”
