This week’s Kumi Now online gathering remembered the International Day of Non-Violence by looking at organisations working non-violently to bring about a just peace in Palestine/Israel. Another important date, the World Mental Health Day, on the 10th of October, will be marked by Kumi Now at the next Tuesday meeting. The Kumi Now document states, ‘the people of Palestine face staggering concrete problems inspired by the Israeli occupation… but there is in addition the intangible burden of psychological damage which these physical violations impose on victims, families and witnesses.’
- Faithful Lord Jesus, help us to cast our burdens on you. We pray to you and ask you to shine your light on those who suffer in our world and bring us hope.
Lord, in your mercy…hear our prayers.
