Light This Candle of Hope

posted by chattering mind

Thanks to Mary Ann Brussat for introducing me to “The Jerusalem Candle of Hope,” an unusual joint-venture, $36 dollar product crafted by Israeli and Palestinian women to raise money for needy Israeli and Palestinian families, as well as foster greater Middle East understanding.

“This candle is an expression of people’s willingness to overcome anger and frustration and bring a new light of hope to the region,” says Amber Chand, one of the architects of this idea. Five percent of the proceeds from the Jerusalem Candle will also benefit the Parents Circle, “an organization of bereaved Israelis and Palestinians who have all lost family members to the conflict and… work for reconciliation and understanding,” the website claims.

This is so inspiring. In the midst of wars all around us, people can still bond whenever there’s a common thread. I’m thinking what a great fund-raiser for churches, and what better way to promote this enterprise than sharing and promoting this cause. There’s blessings here for everyone. I hope orders will pour in for them. Many thanks for sharing.>

CM's Final Posts: You Can Fill the Space
Eighteen years ago, I wrote an article for a magazine that got me called in for a taped interview with a Fox TV morning news anchor.

The first is called New Moon Journal and it is written by Michele Bailey-Lessirard, a life coach, collage artist, and "shamanic astrologer."
