The World Council of Churches is inviting member churches and related organizations to join a week of advocacy and action for a just peace in Palestine and Israel. Those who share the hope of justice are invited to take peaceful actions, together, to create a common international public witness.
During the World Week for Peace in Palestine Israel, from 29 May to 4 June 2010, churches in different countries send a clear signal to policy-makers, interested publics and their own parishes about the urgent need for a peace settlement that secures the legitimate rights and future of both peoples. Participants are requested to plan their activities around these points:
- Pray with churches living under occupation, using a special prayer from Jerusalem.
- Educate about actions that make for peace and about facts on the ground that do not, especially, settlements in occupied territory.
- Advocate with political leaders using ecumenical policies that promote peace with justice.
