Take a Stand

The Church Must Take a Stand and Stop Ignoring Injustice in Israel and Palestine, Is the title of the clergy conference I’ll attend on Saturday, sponsored by a local church to discuss the issues involved in the Palestinian/Israeli conflict.  Speakers include the sister of Rachel Corrie, who was crushed by a bulldozer as she peacefully protested the razing of houses in Gaza.  A foundation for peace and justice has been set up in her name.  Rachel was 23 years old. How do you think the church should respond?
