...reflections from a Compassionate Listener

Sunday, May 30th

After our sessions yesterday, it seems there is no crazier place on the planet than Hebron. It's going to take a bit to catch up and compose that post.

Today we'll be visiting with two families in Beit Ummar, in the West Bank. Both families are suffering daily from the occupation. Tear gas, beating, arrest, detention (our friend's nephews, ages 14 and 16, were just arrested a few days ago)...I'll post more about our visit there later.

Tomorrow we'll visit Bethlehem University. I'm looking forward to small group listening sessions and hearing about the lives and visions of more young people.

This morning, a facebook friend from Gaza posted this video. More and more, my inspiration is coming from the youth, who are tired of the world that they are being handed. Their message to us all: come on friends, we can do better!
