CANCELED From Palestine to the U.S. Border Fence: Why Episcopalians Should Care

March 1, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 10:50 am

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Sunday, repeating until March 22, 2020

This event has been canceled due to the rise of identified cases of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in our area.

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied to a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”  – The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

During the season of Lent, when Christians everywhere undertake a time of reflection and repentance, this four-part series will look at the repercussions of white colonialism through the personal experiences of three parishioners and a rabbi.

Themes and topics will include British colonialism, the Anglican Communion, missionary work, anti-semitism, land and natural resource confiscation, persecution of minorities, slavery, Latino immigrants, white supremacy, white privilege, and others. We will explore these specific experiences and topics while recognizing their shared universal themes of justice and oppression.

March 1: Palestinian Liberation Theology, discussion led by parishioner Susan Perry
March 8: Pilgrimage to the Holy Land, discussion led by parishioner Sharon Haynie
March 15: Experiences in Palestine: Why criticisms of the conflict are not anti-semitic, discussion led by Rabbi Linda Holtzman
March 22: Working at the U.S. Border Wall, discussion led by parishioner Kat McGee

The Reverend Judith Beck will offer a brief introduction before each session to explain any necessary context or other information related to the specific topic.

This programming was organized by a group of parishioners who are going deeper on the justice issues in Palestine and how it relates to our own faith. For more information, email Judith Beck.
