Seeking the peace of Jerusalem
On Sunday, May 17th, Rev. Juanita will be talking about the Conference she attended in Vancouver last month called: Seeking the Peace of Jerusalem. Overcoming Christian Zionism in the quest for justice.

We endeavour to give voice to Palestinian Christianity, all voiceless Palestinians, and others silenced in the face of the violent and illegal Israeli occupation.
