Doug Dicks, photographer for most of the pictures in this website, is the Facilitator for Justice and Peacemaking in Israel and Palestine for the Presbyterian World Mission. He serves at the invitation of Palestinian churches in the Holy Land and with St. Andrews Scots Memorial Church in Jerusalem. Doug has accompanied hundreds of Christians who come to the area to be with Arab Christians and he has engaged with Israelis committed to peace, justice and freedom. Doug was a colleague of mine as I worked in Jerusalem.

J. Martin Bailey, a trained journalist, was the editor of United Church of Christ and Presbyterian magazines. He also led the program of exchange visits with Russian Orthodox Churches and American Christians during the Cold War. Mart joined with me in my work with the Middle East Council of Churches in the 1990s.
