'In the Bleak Midwinter' for Peace Prospects in Israel and Palestine
First United Methodist Church
324 N. Oak Park Ave., Oak Park
Israel’s occupation of Palestinian land has gone on for 50 years. The Bible proclaims that “you shall hallow the 50th year and you shall proclaim liberty throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you: you shall return, every one of you, to your property and every one of you to your family.” (Lev. 25:10) This is the jubilee year. It is time for Palestinians to return to their land. Jim Winkler serves as general secretary and president of the National Council of Churches of Christ in the United States.
Interfaith Action Group on Peace and Justice in Israel and Palestine is community-based group in Oak Park and River Forest working towards peaceful and constructive ways to express our faith and humanist beliefs in confronting the forces of international conflict and social injustice in Israel and Palestine.
