Sunrise and Paul’s Pilgrimage – Update

21 Nov

I love Winter dawns, not just because they are not too early in the morning but also because they are so beautiful.

I have told you before about our friend Paul who is walking from Rome to Jerusalem on a Pilgrimage for Peace and Reconciliation.   Today we received this email which I would like to pass on to you just in case you feel that you could visit his website and leave a message of peace, even support the charity that he is collecting for on his way, Children of Peace. I have put links at the end.

Hi All

Well it feels like this is the last part of the journey. I’m just about to get a ferry from Turkey to Cyprus and then in just over a week I hope to be going by boat from Limassol to Haifa. I’ll have roughly a month exploring Israel and Palestine, and spend Christmas there.

I won’t go in to great detail here other than to say that helping the refugees on Kastellorizo was a very moving and exhausting time but very worthwhile. When I left the island there were about 700 refugees, 250 local residents (and 250 military that took no part).

Please look in on my website, Facebook, Twitter and PLEASE leave your Message of Peace, and lastly please donate generously to the charity I’m supporting, Children of Peace. And, finally please pass this on to anyone you know that might be interested.

Love and Peace

Paul

Here are the links

  http://www.peacewalk2015.com/messages/       to write your message of Peace,

http://www.peacewalk2015.com/route/     to follow Paul’s amazing journey,

https://www.justgiving.com/peacewalk2015/    if you feel able to contribute to the Charity, Children of Peace, which is a non-partisan children’s charity dedicated to building trust, friendship and reconciliation between Israeli and Palestinian children, aged 4 – 17, and their communities. Our aim is to develop a shared spirit via arts, education, health and sports programmes; so future generations might live and work peacefully side-by-side. We believe in working for peace. That’s why we don’t take sides.

And here is Paul

Our Friend, Paul

Our Friend, Paul

    🙂 he’s doing something very important — getting tangibly involved for those of us unable. Thank you Paul!

      He would really love it if you told him this on his website and I would love it if you were to tell him you heard about his vital walk through my blog! 🙂

    Inspiring! Thank you.

    A winter sunrise bridal veil and a message for Peace, they meld together; like solace and benevolence. What a marriage that would be.
