Why Go?

PILGRIMAGE IN ISRAEL AND PALESTINE
WHY GO? A THEOLOGICAL FOUNDATION

  • Come and See: A Call from Palestinian Christians - Guidelines for Christians Contemplating a Pilgrimage to the Holy Land

  • Our brothers and sisters in Christ, with whom we are called to be of one Body (1 Corinthians 12) are yearning for us to come.

  • We are called to love God with all of our minds as well as with all of our hearts (Matthew 22:37); we should therefore be as informed as possible about the history and present-day needs of all people in this "cradle of our faith."

  • "Come, follow me," said Jesus (Mark 1:17). Visiting the sites of the Bible and walking where Jesus walked enriches our understanding of scripture and personal devotions.

  • We are called by our Lord to be active peacemakers and to work for justice among the poor and oppressed. Jesus said: “Blessed are the peacemakers, they shall be called children of God, (Matt 5:9), and “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me …to proclaim release to the captives...and to let the oppressed go free”  (Luke 4:18).

  • Given that the Presbyterian church has among the longest-standing Protestant mission efforts in the Middle East, this is a Presbyterian calling.
