What a week in Jerusalem! The news cycle keeps this city with paramount historical importance to all 3 monotheistic religions, and the world really, ever before us. I was there last week with friend and film producer, John Yeager, in the middle of the current tension seeking, ironically, to capture the story of peacemaking. Stan Friedman of the Covenant Newswire wrote a story yesterday about my experience. Here is his story of an experience we had in the middle of a melee on the Via Dolorosa. Covenant Minister Caught up in Mideast Melee. Below is a video from that experience.
We captured video of multiple stories across the region including the cities of Jerusalem, Bethlehem and Hebron as well as an interview from the hills above the city of Bethlehem. We have Christians, Jews and Muslims telling their stories–shop owners, a Bible teacher, hotel manager, farmer, and peace activists. Our plan is to produce a short documentary film that will bring the story of peacemakers to the top. Pray for us. It seems the ugly aspects of the conflict are ready to drown out the good news and quench the efforts of incredible people of courage working for peace in the trenches and behind the headlines. We have a nod from local news coverage here in Seattle to cover our story and are hoping eventually for broader coverage.
Lastly, we are still raising funds to finish the production of our documentary. Spread the word. Any amount helps! Multiple people giving a little can make a difference, much like the story of peace making in this conflict. There are a lot of people doing their part. Please, invite people into our hope as we do our part in working for peace. Go to my crowd sourcing site to learn more and to contribute. Thanks! Click here——> Blessed Are the Peacemakers.
