Devotional: Mostar Camp

Pause to pray with the team at noon eastern (6PM in Bosnia).

So he came and proclaimed peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near; for through him both of us have access in one Spirit to the Father. So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are citizens with the saints and also members of the household of God, built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the cornerstone. — Ephesians 2:17-21

Mostar is the largest city in Herzegovina and is situated along the Neretva River. At the center of Old Town Mostar, one of the most beautiful and well known bridges in the world, Stari Most, divides the city into east and west. The bridge was built in the 1600s, destroyed during the war, and reconstructed in the 2000s. During the war, Mostar experienced multiple divisions, changes in power among the ethnic groups, and war crimes. To this day, tensions between east and west (Bosniak and Croat, respectively) remain.

If you want real peace in the world, start with children.
— Mahatma Gandhi
