“Come and See”

Thank you to all who gave so much to make Fadi and Ruba’s programme last week so successful. The response was great, and they already feel they belong to P and J, and we to them. We welcomed them as friends and members of our family, we heard Fadi preach and talk, we saw their pictures, we agreed the outline of our Partnership, we tried to imagine what life for Palestinians is like, and they left us with an invitation and a challenge, Come and See.

Now comes the hard bit, and we need your help to keep the vision alive. First, tell us if you want to be part of the P and J response. Then ask yourself what you would wish from us if you were a Palestinian Christian like them, and tell us what you think. Some have already come up with ideas, but we want everyone to have the chance to comment and make proposals on how we can build new links. Have a word with Catherine Berry, Mike Scott-Baumann, Alan Bishop or me, and then watch this space for news of further activities and plans. Thank you, Roger.

You can listen again to Fadi’s sermon on our website by following the ‘Sermon’ link on the homepage.
