About George and Hanna
In the year 2000 God began to lead Hanna, a Jewish Holocaust survivor, to return with her husband George to the Eifel, her home region of Germany. Hanna and George had no idea that God was calling them to a ministry of reconciliation. Read more…
The Eifel is a region of rolling hills, thick forests and pasturelands dotted with villages, farms and small towns. Read more…
In the summer of 2000 we once again visited the Eifel. Within minutes of arriving in Gemünd, Hanna’s home town, we began to meet people who had known Hanna and her family in the 1930s. Hanna and her parents, Amalie and Markus Zack, were Jewish. Toward the end of our stay, we felt God saying that we were to return to Gemünd the next summer and spend a month. Read more…
As God’s spiritual Kingdom advances, often unseen, throughout the earth, and the wisdom and power of Christ increasingly transform individuals, may hostility and division among people, groups, families, Christian traditions and nations be dissolved through… Read more…

Our Prayer for the Eifel
Come, Lord Jesus,
make your home in the Eifel.
By your cross break the power of the darkness in the Eifel.
Holy Spirit, come with healing and new life in the Eifel.
Heavenly Father, to you alone be all worship in the Eifel.
Father, Son, Holy Spirit, you are one. Make us one in the Eifel.
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
Our Prayer for the Church
We pray for your holy catholic Church.
Fill it with all truth,
in all truth with all peace.
Where it is corrupt, purify it.
Where it is in error, direct it.
Where in any thing it is amiss, reform it.
Where it is right, strengthen it.
Where it is in want, provide for it.
Where it is divided, reunite it,
for the sake of Jesus Christ
your Son our Savior. Amen.

Restored by Love
‘Restored by Love’ was the theme of the Paradise in the City Festival organized by the Chemin Neuf Community in July 2016. The Festival hosted over 5000 young people from all over the world in Łódź, Poland, for World Youth Day. Thirty young people from different countries prepared the Festival throughout the year. These young people shared their path of transformation in Christ. Festival speakers (among them Cardinal Luis Antonio Taagle, Bishop Grzegorz Rys, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby) also shared why it is important to allow yourself to be restored by love and how to live after this experience.
One of the striking stories is that of Hanna Miley, Jewish by birth, whose past was closely linked to the city of Łódź during the Second World War. Her testimony shows how God’s mercy can heal and save our lives.
Small Group Sharing
We suggest that you keep a moment of silence after the film to remember the areas of your lives that have been healed. Then you are invited to share the following questions in small groups:
– What touched me or spoke to me in this film? What would I like to keep hold of?
– Have I already been healed by God’s love in my personal story? Do I sense the need for healing in an aspect of my life today?
– Where does healing in my life seem to be impossible from a human viewpoint?
Lord, we pray for all people who need healing in their lives. Help them to open their hearts, heal their lives and approach your love, so they can receive mercy.
We pray that all young people may discover how to live with you in their daily lives. Fill them lives with your presence.
Lord, give us a merciful heart for others and help us to embody the Beatitudes in our lives.
From the Word
My dear friends, let us love one another, since love is from God and everyone who loves is a child of God and knows God. This is the revelation of God’s love for us, that God sent his only son into the world that we might have love through him. Love consists in this: it is not we who loved God, but God loved us and sent his Son to expiate our sins. My dear friends, if God loved us so much, we too should love each other. No one has ever seen God, but as long as we love one another God remains in us and his love comes to its perfection in us.
