    Hello; I looked for an email but couldn’t find one. I am just back from a Canadian Peacemaker Teams delegation to Hebron. Tonight I am blogging about the hospitality, and communion (did they feel the same to you?) and your picture of the teapot and the cup is exactly what I experienced. Would you mind if I used that photo? I would happily link it to your blog, since there is overlap, and you have more to say. Thanks, Erin Morlock, Ontario Canada

      Hi Erin,
      Thanks for your email. I’ve just read an update from Hebron- sounds like things are still pretty awful there.
      But yes, indeed they did, and please feel free to use the photo (if you can link and credit (madeleineeappi@gmail.com) that would be brilliant thanks.
      All the best
