Imagining the Way of Justice–Taking Action
• 13-15 September 2019 • Ottawa, Canada
Join with us to learn and build the network in “Costly Solidarity.” Members and supporters of United Network for Justice and Peace in Palestine and Israel (UNJPPI) are invited to this Gathering. It will be an opportunity to connect with people across Canada working to accomplish the mission of UNJPPI.
Our intention is to pay attention to the June 2017 call of the Palestinian churches to the World Council of Churches to engage in costly solidarity. A leader of the Palestinian Church will speak on “Effective Solidarity is Costly. We will reflect on what has been accomplished since 2012 and we will ask what is blocking our work.
The meeting site is the Best Western Plus Conference Centre in Ottawa.

Noura Erakat will be hosted by CJPME on Thursday, Sep 12 at 7:00 pm ET

Unable to go back to our former theological thinking while struggling to find a way forward….the bible was used to grant approval to the tragedy of the Palestinian people. This is the Faith Nakba, from which various Palestinian Christian theologies have sprung. We at Sabeel believe it is now time to celebrate these theologies… Read more online
This Gathering will explore following themes:
1. Realities on the Ground
2. The Theologies of Palestine
3. Theology in Action.
We will hear from activists, organisations, and individuals from various backgrounds. We will take part in action, and we will endeavour to answer the question of how theology can lead to action in order to achieve a just peace. We call on our friends to come and join us at this important gathering. Your presence gives us hope and encouragement as together we continue on the path of peace with justice.
