Welcome to the Mennonite Palestine Israel Network (MennoPIN) website!
We believe that Christ calls us to work for peace, justice, and reconciliation in the world. The land of Palestine-Israel is in many ways a microcosm of our world, ancient and modern. The conflict in that small area fuels mistrust and violence throughout the region and the entire globe. More importantly, Mennonites have been building relationships and sharing experiences in Palestine-Israel for decades, seeking to discover our own responsibilities in those relationships. For these reasons we feel specifically called to pray and work for peace in that holy land. We commit ourselves to follow the model of Christ, speaking and acting boldly yet nonviolently, with love as our guide. We are an inclusive and anti-racist network. We stand opposed to Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, all forms of racism, and any other expressions of bigotry directed at any person or group.
Word about our network is spreading! Read the Mennonite World Report article on MennoPIN: “Network seeks to mobilize Israel-Palestine peacemaking.” As well as this piece in The Mennonite written by one of MennoPIN’s steering committee members: “Prayer, action for Gaza.”
