Community for Justice in Palestine & Israel

Public Group active 2 years, 11 months ago

This community seeks to follow the model of the 1st Century Jesus by “speaking truth to power” in 21st Century Palestine and Israel. The pursuit of justice is based on building meaningful relationships between and among all people, using the definition given to us by Martin Luther King, Jr., “Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.” This community works for justice in Palestine and Israel by raising awareness about the current situation there, sponsoring trips/pilgrimages to the Holy Land, networking with other likeminded faith-based groups, and advocating the pursuit of justice with elected policy makers. We believe that if justice exists, peace will be found. Contact GJ Tarazi or Dona Smith-Powers.

    For those of you who will attend the Alliance Gathering at Northside Baptist Church in Atlanta next week, please plan to attend a meeting of the Community for Justice in Palestine and Israel. The community will meet over lunch on Saturday. The exact time and place of the community meeting will be announced at the gathering. It will be a chance to get an update the current situation in the occupied territories, especially Gaza. learn about what other Alliance churches are doing, and talk about what we’d like to see included in a fall workshop/gathering that will be held in Winston-Salem in September: tentatively, Sept. 17-19.

    Please forward this information to anyone else you know who may be interested.

    Thanks.
