This blog acts as a central feed for blogs from current and returned United Church Ecumenical Accompaniers (EAs). Since 2003, The United Church of Canada has answered the call of partners to ‘come and see’ by sending EAs to participate in the Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel (EAPPI). The role of a United Church EA extends beyond their overseas experience. Upon return, EAs commit faithfully to sharing their experience in ways that enrich the United Church (writing, speaking, visiting United Church congregations and groups) and, in particular, contribute to the ongoing United Church advocacy efforts related to peace with justice in Israel and Palestine.
