International Day of Prayer for Peace on 21 September

Nora Carmi's reflection explores humanity, equality in God’s creation

As the World Week for Peace in Palestine and Israel commenced, Nora Carmi offered a morning reflection at the Ecumenical Centre in Geneva on 16 September. Carmi is a civil society worker on justice and peace issues who is from the Orthodox community.

Speaking on “Humanity and Equality in God’s Creation,” the theme of this year’s World Week for Peace, Carmi said she was speaking as a Palestinian Christian.

“In an area where there is not one state, the situation is not simple and we need to apply humanity and equality within and beyond the existing entities on the same ground.”
