Palestine: a Creed of Faith



by former CPT Steering Committee member Nora Carmi of Sabeel (Ecumenical Liberation Theology Center in Jerusalem)

I cannot believe in the right of powerful domination, the language of arms or the strength of the mighty

I do believe in human rights and the power of nonviolence

I cannot believe that I should not be concerned or interested in what happens far from my country 

I do believe that the whole world is one large dwelling, that we all cultivate and plant seeds together and we all harvest what we planted

I cannot believe that I will stand up against oppression elsewhere if I can condone injustice HERE

I do believe that the same rights apply here and everywhere.  I believe that I cannot be free as long as my brothers and sisters are trodden down upon and live under the yoke of enslaved tyranny

I cannot believe that dreams will remain dreams, and that death is the end

But I dare to believe in a new humanity; I dare to believe in God’s dream:  A NEW HEAVEN, A NEW EARTH WHERE JUSTICE DWELLS

Septermber Supper Fundraiser

Will you host a dinner party for CPT?

CPT really needs your support in raising $10k in September. Unfortunately, we are behind our financial targets and need your help. We want to dedicate the month of September to bringing people together around the dinner table. You can choose the date, who you invite and what you cook (though our teams have some great recipes prepared!) We’d love to hear if you’d be interested. 

There’s no commitment needed at this stage.
