At First Church Longmeadow, we are blessed to be part of a church community that gives its parishioners opportunities to handle the most difficult issues in a thoughtful, supportive & intellectual manner.  The next session of Adult Education‘s Ethics series will be no exception.

The MACUCC has promulgated a Resolution of Witness concerning the Israeli- Palestinian conflict.  The PDF Version of this Resolution is here for your review:

How does this Resolution influence the complex effort towards peace in our beloved Holy Land?  How should we approach this question of boycott & divestment from certain corporations connected to this heart-wrenching conflict?

This is difficult subject matter.   Thankfully, our representative & impressive panel of presenters will help us discern our approach to the Resolution –  before it is voted upon by both the General Synod, and our own congregation.

The panel will occur on Sunday Feb 1, 2015 11:30 – 1pm in Bailey Hall (downstairs) at the First Church of Christ Longmeadow.  Panelists include Gay Harter, Professor Joe Levine of UMass Amherst, Rabbi Amy Katz of Temple Beth-El & Professor Justin Cammy of Smith College.  The panel will be moderated by our own Pastor Marisa Brown Ludwig – MACUCC Chair of the Task Force on Ecumenism and Interfaith Relations.

The promotional flyer is available here for your review.  We hope you will join us!
