October 2, 2013 – Starting September 24th, 2013, Lutherans for Justice in the Holy Land* will join people of faith all over the world in monthly prayer vigils for a just peace in Palestine. These vigils, endorsed by the ELCA and its Peace Without Walls campaign, started last Christmas Eve by ACT PALESTINE. They now include 15 countries–with congregations praying monthly, from Nigeria to Israel! Our first vigil will follow the 7 pm talk by Palestinian Lutheran Pastor, Mitri Raheb, at Concordia University, 2811 NE Holman, 2nd floor of the Hagen Campus Center. All other vigils will be held CLC at 7 pm until the Israeli occupation of Palestine is dismantled.
*Lutherans for Justice in the Holy Land is a ministry of Central Lutheran Church in Portland, Oregon. Come join us! http://www.centralportland.org/ljhl
