As you know, the Israel/Palestine Resolution was tabled in Kansas City last summer. As we look forward to a revision being presented at the Mennonite Church USA convention in Orlando next summer, the steering committee is already starting to organize for a MennoPIN presence at the convention. There are two ways that you can help prepare for the convention:
1. Educate the delegates in your congregation and conference. The Kairos Study guide is a great resource for a Sunday School class or other adult forum.
a. Printed guides are available from MennoMedia.
b. A PDF can be downloaded from MennoPIN.
c. Please consider making a contribution to MennoPIN so we can provide copies of the Kairos Study Guide to all conference leaders.
2. Contribute to the cost of a booth and printed materials in Orlando. We estimate that we will need $1500.
a. Please make checks out to “Pleasant View Mennonite Church” and clearly write “MennoPIN” in the comment line.
b. Send checks to:
Pleasant View Mennonite Church
1101 N Lucas Street
Mount Pleasant, IA 52641
As convention planning gets underway, we will be in touch with updates on our end, but please do let us know what you all are doing as well.
Thank you for your support and all the work you do for a just peace!
