UNJPPI 2019 Gathering, Ottawa, ON September 13-15, 2019
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.
Visit www.unjppi.ca for more information about the speakers and program and to register.
As part of this event, First United will host Palestinian Christian Leader Omar Haramy
Friday, September 13th at 12:00 noon to 1:30 p.m.
This will be an eye-opening first hand description of the ongoing efforts for justice and solidarity. Catering by Yasmin Syrian Catering. Gluten Free & lactose free.
