Welcome Aaron, yes I was at an interesting meeting last week on the Kairos-Palestine, a wonderful mixture of Friends, Mennonites, Catholics and a few Lutherans. 

I work with Christian Peacemaker Teams in the land of Canaan/Israel/Palestine, hence my regular visits to Ramallah (possibly May 2013 next visit).  I also work with QCEA.  So it would be a pleasure to worship with you.

Hello, Aaron!  I have not read your post.  I am not a member of the group where you submitted it.  However, I hope you won't feel too badly about words written in the heat of the moment, but later regretted.  It happens to many people, myself included!
