Watching Over Israel-and some fun

Sometimes blogging and twitter are, well, at least fun. This morning I was reading a tweet by the Israel/Palestine Mission Network which was linked to a video of a few Israelis asking the Methodist Church, which is in conference, to vote for divestment from some companies doing business with Israel. Listening to the video I noticed on the side a video of a Methodist Church choir singing Mendelssohn’s “He watching Over Israel,” from Elijah. It seems to me that the Methodist and Presbyterians might be grappling with the One who seeks both justice and truth. And not all of the truth is told by those promoting divestment. The Palestinians need a state and the Israelis need security.  I am placing the video here so that the Methodist and Presbyterians can listen and remember that God does watch over Israel.
