A Churches for Middle East Peace (CMEP) Advocacy Summit
“And the second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’
There is no commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:31
Injustice and strife have created victims on all sides of the conflict in Israel and Palestine. From local communities to the Middle East as a whole, no group goes untouched. The conflict denies dignity and fundamental human rights for every individual living through the situation.
The best way to change the world is by changing how we act in the world: treating others as Christ demands us; following the example of early Christians who blazed a trail of equality. As followers of Christ, we are all equal in God’s eyes. At Churches for Middle East Peace (CMEP) we believe that our differences should not divide us, rather they should open opportunities for learning, growth, and community.
On June 22, 2020, CMEP and attendees met via Zoom for our annual advocacy summit where we worked to remove the obstacles that prevent us from seeing both Israelis and Palestinians as human beings and deserving of human rights and help us move toward seeing everyone as equal in God’s eyes and the actions that follow out of that belief. CMEP embraces an impassioned call for justice and peace for all people of the Middle East.
