In the summer of 2019, James Walker, a Master of Architecture student at Laurentian University and long- time member of the United Church of Canada, travelled to Palestine and Israel with 13 other pilgrims as part of the Youth for Peace Pilgrimage. While there, he travelled to many different holy sites and sacred spaces, spent time in occupied territories and refugee camps where he saw the effects of the Israeli occupation, and listened to the stories of citizens and of United Church partners. Through these experiences he gained a better understanding of the sociopolitical situation, developed insights into the issues impacting the Holy Land, and explored possibilities for the future.
