This Advent Season

Churches for Middle East Peace Invites You to Choose Hope

As we enter a season of expectant waiting for Jesus, we remember and stand with our Christian family living in those places where it feels as though Christ has yet to arrive. Sadly, the Holy Land where Jesus was born and walked often looks likes one of those places still waiting.

We observe this time of waiting and wondering in a world filled with very real pain, suffering, and loss. While optimism falters in the face of these realities, we know that Christmas will arrive and Emmanuel, God with us, will be born.

As we experience the Hope of Advent, we turn our eyes to the Holy Land and Choose Hope. Not because we ignore the realities we see but because we know that Emmanuel walks with us as we do the peace and justice work God has called us to.

We Choose Hope by Educating our communities about the difficult realities faced by Christian communities living in the Middle East.

We Choose Hope by Elevating the voices of Palestinian and Israeli peacemakers.

We Choose Hope by Advocating for policies with the U.S. government that promote equality, human rights, security, and justice.

This Advent we invite you to join us and Choose Hope. Through Devotions, a Webinar, Action Alerts, and updates from Holy Land, CMEP will provide multiple opportunities for you to Choose Hope and stand in solidarity with the people of the Holy Land.
