MISSION CAPSULES: Shaun MacDonald was inspired to be an instrument of God’s peace by the prayer of St. Francis. He decided to put that into action by serving as an Ecumenical Accompanier in Hebron, Palestine. From October 2019 to January 2020 Shaun provided a protective presence, monitored human rights violations, and supported local peace and human rights groups as he witnessed life under occupation. Most importantly, he visited Palestinian families and shop keepers to learn their stories so he could share them with Canadians upon his return. The World Council of Churches created the Ecumenical Accompaniment Program in Palestine and Israel in 2002. Since then, over 1800 accompaniers from 22 countries have participated. Gifts to Presbyterians Sharing … support this important ministry.

STUFF:

There are over 7500 varieties of apples in the world and it would take you 20 years to try them all if you had one each day.

Popsicles were invented by an 11 year old in 1905.

Peanuts are not nuts. They grow in the ground and so are considered lugumes.
