A delegation from the Evangelical Church of Westphalia has been making visits around the ELCJHL in recent days. On Oct. 11, the EKvW’s bishop, Alfred Buss (second from left), preached at Christmas Lutheran Church in Bethlehem, where he encouraged believers not to let the political realities of the occupation rob them of their hope. ELCJHL Bishop Munib Younan (holding plate) spoke with the group the following day, recalling the church’s German roots and the EKvW’s long history of partnership to the Palestinian church. The two leaders expressed happiness that the churches are renewing the relationship.
