Global Missions: “Did You Know?”
There is a national organization called Churches for Middle East Peace, (CMEP for short), a coalition of 27 national church denominations and organizations in Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant, and Evangelical traditions, including the UCC.
CMEP “works to encourage U.S. policies that actively promote a just, lasting, and comprehensive resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, ensuring security, human rights, and religious freedom for all the people of the Middle East”.
CMEP helps churches and individuals nationwide advocate in a knowledgeable, timely, holistic, and effective way to express their concerns about justice and peace for all peoples in the region. CMEP activists, board and staff engage directly with policy makers at every level. The Churches for Middle East Peace organization invites individual churches to partner with them, with special attention to advocacy and education of congregations and communities.
Rock Spring has just completed an application to be a partner with the Churches for Middle East Peace (CMEP). Find out more and sign up for the free email CMEP newsletter at http://www.cmep.org/. (Look under Resources for Congregations for prayer and worship ideas and tools.)
The following resources are available to help all of us learn more about the potential and actual ways we can be a more effective partner with the Church of the Redeemer, as well as be better informed about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
