You know why I loved taking a helicopter ride above Jerusalem? Because from up there, there was no division. There was no “East Jerusalem” and “West Jerusalem.” There were no “Muslim neighborhoods” and “Jewish neighborhoods.” And there were no wealthy parts and poor parts of this little city up on a hill.
There was just JERUSALEM. The city which does not belong to us, but only to God. The city which we have been blessed to walk upon.
There was unity. There was peace. There was beauty.
My prayer is that one day soon we will see this reality ON the ground and not just above it.
