Evangelical Lutheran Church in America

"Peace Not Walls: Making a Difference in the Holy Land" is a new DVD that illustrates how the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) is working for "peace with justice" in the Middle East. The 28-minute video examines the ELCA's engagement with Christians, Jews and Muslims working for peace, accompaniment with Palestinian Lutherans, the Israeli separation barrier and settlements and more.

"Peace Not Walls is an ELCA campaign dedicated to peace with justice in Israel and Palestine," said Carol LaHurd, campaign coordinator, ELCA Global Mission. She said the team that produced the new DVD endeavored to include "many voices" since the social, political, economic and religious situation in the Holy Land is complex. The DVD includes images from the Holy Land, interviews and examples of interfaith peacemaking activities.

Through Peace Not Walls, the ELCA is working with other Lutherans and with ecumenical and interfaith partners toward safety and security for all Israelis and Palestinians; reduction of poverty and unemployment; and a negotiated final status agreement that includes a shared Jerusalem as capital of two independent states and with access and full rights in the city for Jews, Christians, and Muslims.

"Peace Not Walls: Making a Difference in the Holy Land" is available at http://ELCA.org/peacenotwalls/educate/2008video.html on the ELCA Web site.
