Yael’s Holy Land Reflections
Being back in Chicago for the first time since my father’s passing has been hard, but has also given me peace, as I see how his life’s work, The Fellowship, is only growing stronger in our mission of bringing Christians and Jews together to do God’s work.
On Tisha B’Av, through fasting, reading the Book of Lamentations, and crying out to God in prayer, Jews mourn the long history of tragedies experienced by our people. But no matter how difficult things may seem, being able to watch and partake in His promises coming to fruition brings me hope and strength.
Though at one time it was a radical idea, today, the relationship between Christians and Jews is not only possible, but a blessing to us all. Let us continue to work in the spirit of togetherness, united in service to our God.
In the U.S., I’m meeting with Christian leaders like Gordon Robertson, whose father Pat has been such a great friend of my father and The Fellowship from the beginning. Watch my recent interview with Gordon on the 700 Club.
During the Three Weeks, a time of sorrow and mourning for the Jewish people, we remember that we can never make peace with a broken world and that only God can bring true healing.
