Gaza connections: Twinning

Mennopin

MennoPIN (Mennonite Palestine Israel Network) invites you to a 1-hour Zoom conversation with Suheil Tarazi and Hani Farah of the Gaza YMCA on Saturday, January 14, 202 at 10:00 am EST. Suheil and Hani will talk about the current humanitarian crisis in Gaza and the compelling work that the YMCA is doing to support families in the midst of these dire conditions caused by the ongoing Israeli blockade.
Suheil Tarazi is a Gaza YMCA board member and Programme Manager for the British Council, an international organization that works to facilitate intercultural relations and educational opportunities. Hani Farah is the Executive Secretary General of the Gaza YMCA and has frequent contact with the International YMCA. Both Suheil and Hani have established relationships in many countries and travel internationally when possible. They and their families are active members of the Greek Orthodox Church of Gaza.
Dave will moderate the conversation. The Fellowship of Hope and Gaza YMCA meet by Zoom twice monthly and have been partners for over two years through MennoPIN’s “Twinning with Gaza” Initiative. There are currently four such relationships between Mennonite Church USA congregations and non-profit groups in Gaza. The purpose of the initiative is to increase our denomination’s awareness of the situation faced by the people in Gaza and their resilient work to express God’s love.

the Re-Membering Garden

2022-11-26%20Re-Membering%20garden

With neighbors in South Central Elkhart, we hope to establish a garden intended to honor the Potawatomi people who tended this land for centuries, and the Black families who created a vibrant community on the Elkhart’s South Side a hundred years ago. Our hope is that this might be a place that welcomes anyone, to come alone to be quiet, or to gather with others for conversation, fellowship or worship.

Not just for people, may this be a place where all God’s creatures find life, relationship, and harmony, whether trees, flowers, birds, or insects. All are invited to help make this a habitation of peace and simple beauty

MennoMedia has a Salt and Light curriculum that currently points to and asks the questions we have been facing into. these videos are intended to assist the teachers of the Sunday School classes but useful for any of us.
