Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: "May they prosper who love you."-- Psalm 122:6
Christ Church's Middle East mission acts in solidarity with those who work for peace in Jerusalem and throughout the Middle East; the land that is holy to Jews, Christians, and Muslims. Through study, prayer and pilgrimage the mission aims to build relationships and plant seeds that will yield a harvest of peace with justice. Christ Church is aligned with the mission efforts of the Diocese of Washington in forming a partnership with the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem.
