Israel/Palestine: Beyond the Headline
"In recent years the PC(USA) has made history with its strong support for Palestinian rights. This past June, the General Assembly passed an overture calling on Re/MAX to refrain from selling properties in illegal Israeli settlements. The Assembly also approved the use of boycotts and other nonviolent measures in support of oppressed peoples throughout the world.
Interested in learning more about the situation in the Holy Land and why more and more mainline denominations are taking strong positions against Israel's settlement enterprise? Then please plan to attend Israel/Palestine: Beyond the Headlines."
A workshop responding to the call of Palestinian Christians—their word of faith, hope and love to Christians around the world, asking us to “preserve the word of God as good news for all.” Join with others who are passionate about justice, freedom and equality in the Holy Land. Learn the latest about the current situation in Israel and Palestine; hear from Palestinian Christians and others who are working for a just peace; make connections with issues of race and global social justice movements.
