During Advent and Christmas, send messages of peace and hope to Bethlehem
In May 2015, Pax Christi had the great honour to celebrate our 70th anniversary in Bethlehem; our World Assembly was hosted by our friends and colleagues with the Arab Educational Institute (AEI), a Pax Christi International member organisation based in Palestine. During our time on the West Bank, we visited many sites, met with committed Palestinian and Israeli peacemakers, and prayed along the separation wall.
During Advent and Christmas 2015, Pax Christi International members and people of good will are invited to write a message of hope and encouragement to our friends in Bethlehem. AEI will distribute them to citizens of Bethlehem, members and friends.
Please e-mail your Christmas peace prayers and wishes before 25 December 2015 (Western Christmas) and/or 7 January 2016 (Eastern Christmas). While English is the preferred language, non-native English speakers may use their mother tongue.
Send your emails to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A Number of messages of hope and solidarity from Pax Christi members around the world are already posted and available on the AEI website.
