WGRG Liturgy Booklet no.8

3000 years of wall building in Israel & Palestine

A complete order of service on the historical & contemporary situations in Israel & Palestine, contexted in the histories and experience of their respective peoples. This is a much-requested liturgy which we have used very successfully both on Iona, and at Holy City in Glasgow.

Featuring a symbolic physical building of a ‘separation wall’ in the middle of the worship space, it powerfully brings home the cruelty and tragedy of Israel-Palestine today.

NB there is a CD of the same name, recorded live at Holy City.
