“Yes, we are living in darkness these days and it is not just in Palestine. It is everywhere. It is time for us to stop blaming the darkness for being too dark and start looking for the light that is fully present in each one of us and that light will shine only when we do what we are called to do.” Sami Awad from Bethlehem shares his thoughts at Advent.
“The home is rebuilt, the family is in, the volunteers are safely home and our fifth rebuilding project in Palestine is complete.” Nive Hall tells the story of Amos Trust’s fifth home rebuild in Palestine.

‟As Westerners we travel with huge privilege, relative wealth, social and religious freedom and we carry the baggage of empire, colonialism and militaristic imperialism. Simply visiting does not give us the right to assume an air of victimhood, to feel we are free from collusion with power because we spent a week hearing stories or to point angry fingers at oppressors while we benefit from unjust systems and structures.” Read about Amos trustee Jess Foster’s recent women-only trip to Palestine.
“He could not have known that every single one of his five children would be displaced in 1967 and that they would all lose their right to be called Palestinians.
