Earlier this year retired Anglican Bishop Richard Llewellin spent three months in Israel/Palestine as an EA – that’s a member of Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel (EAPPI), which sends out groups of volunteers (EA’s) to Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories. They’re there to support Israeli and Palestinian peace activists, monitor what happens, report violations, and talk about their experience when they get home.

EAPPI is organized worldwide by the World Council of Churches and UK by Quaker Peace and Social Witness. It was set up in response to a call by the Heads of Churches in Jerusalem for a protective presence.
