A Date for Your Calendar. Please reserve April 1st on your calendar - no fooling! On that day Immanuel will be privileged to host a Pilgrimage to Peace panel presentation by the Churches for Middle East Peace CMEP). Wausau is one of three sites on their national spring tour. The four panel members will be in the Wausau area April 1-3 and will be presenting to a variety of audiences. During the presentations, they will discuss realities affecting the Palestinian refugee community
and the importance of advocating for human rights in Israel, the Palestinian Territories, and with refugees throughout the Middle East. The occupation of the Palestinian territories impacts people living on all sides of the conflict, including both Israelis and Palestinians.
The panel features Suzann Mollner, Executive Director of Beirut and Beyond, a Palestinian refugee support organization, and Obada Shtaya, formerly of One Voice Movement, now with Zimam, empowering young Palestinian leaders. CMEP Outreach Director, Sara Burback and Development Director, Alison Glick complete the panel.
The presentation will begin at 6:30 pm. Following the presentation and discussion, a reception will be held in the Gathering Room. If there are individuals from Immanuel who might like to welcome those attending, assist with the reception or host the panel members for dinner prior to the presentation, please call and talk with Claudette Harring. Sign up sheets will be available in the Northax.
Your interest is encouraged and your involvement will be welcomed and appreciated.
