Through The Checkpoint: The Pilgrim

Despite conflict and occupation pilgrims continue to flood to Jerusalem, many disengaged from the conflicts roaring outside and within church walls, as perhaps is the case with this pilgrim, who prays over the Stone of Anointing where, tradition holds, Jesus' body was anointed before his burial.

Despite conflict and occupation pilgrims continue to flood to Jerusalem, many disengaged from the conflicts roaring outside and within church walls, as perhaps is the case with this pilgrim, who prays over the Stone of Anointing where, tradition holds, Jesus’ body was anointed before his burial.

“What do we mean by, when everyday we pray the Lord’s Prayer?  We say, “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.”  So, we have to bring justice to earth and do something on earth, that is what Jesus taught us.  Also I refuse, when I speak they tell me you’re are part of the peace churches.  I refuse to say, oh the Quakers are a peace church.  All churches should be peace churches because violence was contrary to the mind of Christ.”

 

Through the Checkpoint is a multi-media project created by Rev. Katie Archibald Woodward who writes,

“It is created in partnership with the Creative Visions Foundation and is serving in tandem with ongoing efforts to foster justice and peace for all living in the Palestinian-Israeli region by the continued call for equity, human dignity, and the pursuit of a coexistence without occupation.

I hope to help our global community gain a fuller picture of life in Palestine/Israel and motivate viewers, like you, to join movements to end a dehumanizing status quo and catalyze peace and equity for Palestinians, Bedouins, and Jewish Israelis alike. ”

The Christ child was born into a time and place in which there was “a dehumanizing status quo.” The season of Advent prepares us for Christmas. Advent is a time of unhiding, revealing. Advent calls us to see, look and discover. You are invited to see, look and discover something hard and hopeful about the Holy Land in Through the Checkpoint
