Israel/Palestine Trip Advent Resources 

IOPT-advent-resources-2019In September 2019, 21 members of the United Reformed Church (URC) accompanied Derek Estill, Moderator of the URC General Assembly, on a visit to the Israel and Occupied Palestinian Territories (IOPT). It was not a tour or a holiday for any of us, but for all of us it was an immersive pilgrimage as we spent much of our time immersed in the lives of people who are among the world's most maligned, treated as strangers in their own land.

In these materials for Advent, we seek to use the experiences we gained during our visit, literally Walking the Way of Jesus, to read the Bible in a new light, particularly the Old Testament book of Isaiah and the Gospel according to Matthew, to enable those who are leading worship, Bible study or theological reflection during Advent, to explore and share some of these insights.
