On Earth Peace sponsors Middle East peacemaking delegation.

On Earth Peace has extended a special invitation to Church of the Brethren peacemakers to join a delegation to the Middle East (Israel/Palestine) led by executive director Bob Gross on Jan. 8-21, 2008. The group will travel to the cities of Jerusalem, Bethlehem, and Hebron. There they will have the unique opportunity to meet with Israeli and Palestinian peace and human rights workers.

In addition, delegation members will join Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT) in Hebron and the village of At-Tuwani in a limited amount of accompaniment and documentation, and in a public witness. The trip is being led in conjunction with CPT, which since June 1995 has maintained a team of trained peacemakers in Hebron.

On Earth Peace will assist Church of the Brethren members in raising funds for the cost of the trip by offering ideas, networking, and limited scholarships. Applications are available through the On Earth Peace website ( and are due in November. Contact On Earth Peace executive director Bob Gross at 260-982-7751 or; or Claire Evans at Christian Peacemaker Teams (, 773-277-0253 or
