John Buchanan in his blog entry titled “Weep Together”talks of the of the various narratives blocking meaningful negotiations on the part of both Israel and Palestine. http://jmbpastor.wordpress.com/2014/05/30/weep-together/

This is a topic that will require serious and thoughtful prayer and discernment when the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) General Assembly meets in Detroit this coming June.

The hymn, When Jesus Wept, immediately comes to mind: 

 When Jesus Wept, the falling tear

In mercy flowed beyond all bound;

When Jesus groaned, a trembling fear

Seized all the guilty world around.”

Presbyterian Hymnal #312

Do we not all groan and weep for these people longing to live on sacred ground and in God’s Shalom / Peace.  

Prayer:  Let there be peace in our hearts and minds throughout the world God has given us all to share.  AMEN
