IPMN shares the 2017 Kairos Palestine Christmas Alert
Let us all work together to spread the message of Palestinian Christians to the world!
This year the Christmas Alert sheds light upon and raises awareness of what Bethlehem has been experiencing since the Balfour Declaration, of partition and military occupation. It encourages churches around the world to act!
"Everything that happens in our land, everyone who lives there, all the pains and hopes, all the injustice and all the efforts to stop this injustice, are part and parcel of the prayer of the Palestinian Church and the service of all her institutions." (Kairos Palestine)
Since the 2009 publication of the Kairos Palestine document, A Moment of Truth, the Israel/Palestine Mission Network has been an active partner in solidarity with Palestinian and global groups who have embraced the call of the document. Each year at Christmas and at Easter, Kairos Palestine publishes an Alert. These Alerts focus on current "facts on the ground" as they are evolving, and each Alert contains meditations and prayers written by members of the Kairos Palestine Movement.
The Christmas Alert features writers who are familiar, long-term partners and friends to IPMN, bringing the call of justice and hope from Palestinian Christians to each one of us. May their witness serve to revitalize our own advocacy this Advent. During this Advent season, may we carry their truth and their call to our communities and to the wider world.
