Read the blog reports and see some of the photos from our 2014 conference
We are called to be witnesses to and for peace in the Holy Land. In faithful and hope-filled response, the Presbyterian Peacemaking Program’s Mosaic of Peace conference invites Presbyterians to experience this remarkable and troubled region, encounter its diverse people, explore its rich history and complex current situation, and engage with those who seek its peace.
As participants in the conference, individuals will be:
INSPIRED by the stories of Christian peacemakers in the Holy Land, walk in the footsteps of the Prince of Peace and encounter contemporary Palestinians and Israelis;
EQUIPPED by engagement with Christian, Muslim and Jewish leaders, experience contextual theology and study peacemaking practices within the framework of PCUSA policy;
CONNECTED with global and local partners to take meaningful action for a just and lasting peace in the region.

I'm interested, but I'd like to stay for an extra two weeks to accommodate more travel in the area- is that possible?
Carl (the great Hortoni) Is there all you can eat baklava? By pounds, how much hummus will be consumed?
Carl ... am interested ... who are the leaders? Both travel guides and speakers/teachers?
