12 - January - 2009 -- Jerusalem Presentation
Our bimonthly Jerusalem Peacemakers Bring and Share Meal. Normally we have about 30 people. Today we counted over 170. The main reason was that we gave a presentation about our recent trip to Palestine, and since obviously crazy things are happening over there, people are very interested and concerned. It was really good to see so many people, and actually so diverse too.
About 8 of us talked, giving our own personal view of different aspects of our trip. I'm personally very pleased with how it all went. We had a lot of good comments. I also got a lot of kudos for my photos. which really does validate my costly purchasing.
I think the main thing though, is that this is just the start. We all need to go and actually start doing things, and we do have a few more events lined up already, and a lot of interest for our next trip back out there.
