Al-Hallaq, a 32-year-old Palestinian man with autism, was shot and killed May 30 by Israeli police for allegedly failing to stop at a checkpoint just inside Lions’ Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem. His teacher, who was accompanying him to take a gift to his school, begged police not to shoot, telling them he did not understand. (Taqi Spateen, a Palestinian artist)

Support mission co-workers

Since 1984, the Presbyterian Peacemaking Program, in partnership with World Mission, has helped make it possible for international peacemakers to travel throughout the U.S. each fall to open our hearts and minds, broaden our sense of God’s inclusive family, and help equip us to build a culture of peace and nonviolence for all God’s children. Although current travel restrictions have caused their annual itineration to be canceled this year, we are pleased to announce a two-week International Peacemaker Virtual Symposium, Sept. 27–Oct. 10, featuring a number of our past international peacemakers. The Symposium will feature a schedule of online interviews, panel discussions and presentations with peacemakers who have visited us in the past. The International Peacemaker Program is supported by your gifts to the Peace & Global Witness Offering, taken by most congregations on World Communion Sunday, Oct. 4. In addition, the Peace & Global Witness Offering produces A Season of Peace daily reflections designed to help participants explore practices for building peace on every scale. Sign up today to receive these reflections in your email.
