Let’s Keep Talking

The new Easter Season resources, Let’s Keep Talking, for the Unsettling Goods campaign are here! The poster and brochure were sent out in Infopac on Jan 16, and the worship, workshop and video resources are now online

We know that some of you will not have received the poster and brochure, so invite you to let us know if you’d like those print materials. If you need multiple brochures for use with a group or faith community, we will ship them to you. Either way, just reply with your mailing address to unsettling-goods@united-church.ca with your request.

Let’s Keep Talking! About just peace in Palestine and Israel – Enliven the Easter Season (Apr 12 – May 17) with Courageous Conversations about just peace in Palestine and Israel

 How to Use this Brochure and Poster in your Congregation

 This brochure and poster are designed to be used as conversation starters in your congregation. They name common questions and myths that often block us from having helpful discussions about just peace in Palestine and Israel.  Each response is intended to encourage deeper consideration of the issue.
