Dear Friends,

As the terrible situation in Gaza continues, we are sharing an updated “Prayer and Action for Gaza” bulletin insert in English and Spanish. Please find this attached and again, ask your congregation to use this as a template for Sunday’s service. We will also post it on the MennoPIN website at mennopin.wordpress.com/gazaunderattack/. Please do let us know if you use this and share with us other ways you are responding in your community.

Keep up to date with what is going on, and on ways to get involved, by visiting the websites of Mennonite Central Committee (mcc.org/learn/where/middle-east/palestine), Christian Peacemaker Teams (cpt.org/category/cptnet-categories/palestine), and Mennonite Church USA (mennoniteusa.org/lament-and-prayer-for-israelpalestine).

Also, continue to check out websites like the U.S. Campaign to End the Occupation (endtheoccupation.org/gazaunderattack) and Jewish Voice for Peace (jewishvoiceforpeace.org).

Thank you.

Peace,

MennoPIN steering committee

Jonathan Brenneman (St. Marys, OH), Tom Harder (Wichita, KS), Joy Lapp (Mt Pleasant, IA), George Muedeking (Albuquerque, NM), Rachelle Lyndaker Schlabach (Washington, DC), Timothy Seidel (Lancaster, PA)
