Menno PIN: Mennonite Palestine Israel Network
We believe that Christ calls us to work for peace, justice, and reconciliation in the world. The land of Palestine/Israel is in many ways a microcosm of our world, ancient and modern. The conflict in that small area fuels mistrust and violence throughout the region and the entire globe. For these reasons we feel specifically called to pray and work for peace in that holy land. We commit ourselves to follow the model of Christ, speaking and acting boldly yet non-violently, with love as our guide.
Goals/Purposes of the Network:
1) To encourage and support advocacy and action in local and national contexts, with a special emphasis within the Mennonite Church.
2) To develop and/or promote educational resources related to Israel/Palestine, including books, movies, and curricula for use by individuals, congregations, or other groups.
3) To enable quick communication among members of the network and the larger Mennonite Church regarding ongoing developments in Palestine/Israel.
4) To join with people of faith and conscience around the world who share our passion for peace with justice, especially those working within Palestine/Israel.
Mennonite Central Committee (MCC), a worldwide ministry of Anabaptist churches, shares God’s love and compassion for all in the name of Christ by responding to basic human needs and working for peace and justice. MCC envisions communities worldwide in right relationship with God, one another and creation.
