CFOS Joins a Global Christian Campaign for Justice in PalestineJuly 19, 2020
CFOS has endorsed a global campaign, titled “Cry for Hope,” by Kairos Palestine and Global Kairos for Justice that calls on all Christians to reflect on the systematic oppression of Palestinians and lend their voices to the global movement calling for the end of the occupation. Here is an excerpt from the call to action:
“We call upon all Christians and on churches at congregational, denominational, national, and global ecumenical levels to engage in a process of study, reflection and confession concerning the historic and systemic deprivation of the rights of the Palestinian people, and the use of the Bible by many to justify and support this oppression. We call on churches to reflect on how their own traditions can express the sacred duty to uphold the integrity of the church and the Christian faith concerning this issue. We cannot serve God while remaining silent about the oppression of the Palestinians.”
