Participating churches include members from St. Peter & St. James Anglican Church as well as members from the Evangelical Lutheran, United, Baptist, Alliance, Salvation Army, Roman Catholic, Mennonite and Faith Light churches. 

This year the writing committee were women of Palestine using St. Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians, “I beg you…bear with one another in love” (Ephesians 4:1-3).
