Midday Meeting (01.13 @ 1 pm): John B. to Share his Experience with Christian Peacemaker Teams

The Midday Meeting meets on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. It’s open to all want to join the fellowship. 1 pm for a brown bag lunch. And after eating, about 1:30, we will begin the discussion for the day.

This month, John B., our minister for outreach, will be talking about the work of Christian Peacemaker Teams supporting nonviolent resistance and human rights in Palestine, and specifically looking at Israeli occupation and violence in Hebron, the largest city in the West Bank. John worked with Christian Peacemaker Teams before coming to Old First.

He will also talk a little bit about broader resistance to the occupation and responses by Christians in North America (like the divestment resolution by the UCC’s this summer).

Join us for learning more about how our faith meets the world.
