February 23, 2022 – General Minister and President Teresa “Terri” Hord Owens co-signed Compelled to Witness: A Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) Pastoral Letter Affirming Justice, Rights, and Accountability in Promoting Peace in Israel/Palestine with Rev. LaMarco Cable, President of Division of Overseas Ministries, and Rev. Sheila P. Spencer, Interim President of Disciples Home Missions.
From the letter, “In this time when a resolution to the conflict in Israel/Palestine seems as distant as ever, and advocacy for a particular kind of solution may not be effective, we support a rights-based approach that will ensure the rights, equality, and dignity of all people concerned, especially the most vulnerable, based on principles of peace and justice, human rights, and international law.”
Rev. Teri Nilson Baird says
Thank you all SO much!!
