The mission of the EAPPI is to accompany Palestinians and Israelis in their nonviolent actions and concerted advocacy efforts to end the occupation. It is a response to a call made to the World Council of Churches by the Heads of Churches in Jerusalem. It is supported by Pax Christi International. In Britain and Ireland the EAPPI is supported by the Churches' Commission on Mission of the Churches Together in Britain and Ireland, Pax Christi, and is managed by Quaker Peace & Social Witness.

BETHLEHEM 2011: Stories of Peace for Advent & Christmas
This year has brought new prospects for freedom in the Arab world and in other countries the movement towards democracy and accountability seems unstoppable despite the cruel repression. Inspired by these examples individuals and groups everywhere show enormous courage in choosing nonviolent routes that lead to peace and justice.
During this Advent and Christmas, we invite you to share in these times of hope and change. In the past we made a call for sending wishes and prayers, now we invite you to exchange stories for peace. These can be short, about a situation in the world or about your own life. What they will have in common is a message of peace and justice, nonviolence and bridge building that have offered hope and inspiration.
Please e-mail your stories before the 25th of December 2011 (Western Christmas) and/or the 7th of January 2012 (Eastern Christmas) to Pax Christi’s partner the Arab Educational Institute at the following address: email@example.com. The stories will be used in Bethlehem, Palestine and elsewhere in educational and religious settings and published here www.aeicenter.org
