CPT INTERNATIONAL: Message of gratitude to Sarah Thompson as she completes her tenure of service as CPT Executive Director
Dear CPT Supporters,
Sarah Thompson, Executive Director of Christian Peacemaker Teams,
will complete her tenure of service in October 2017.
Sarah Thompson’s MLK Speech at Goshen College, Indiana 2017
time of service comes to a close, the Steering Committee, Program
Director Milena Rincon, and members of CPT would like to take the
opportunity to thank her for her hard work, leadership and commitment
to the organization, and the holy work of peacemaking. Sarah’s
term has been marked by vision, intelligence and relentless energy.
Her dedication to the well-being of CPT is matched only by her desire
to further its reach in building partnerships to transform violence
and oppression. During these years Sarah has taken CPT to new
places and started new conversations while tending well to the
history and relationships that formed the organization. That is
not an easy task, but she performed it with wisdom and grace.
Sarah’s optimism and kindness are inspiring. She never failed
to acknowledge the dignity of every person she interacted with.
We thank her for that gift.
Milena Rincon, Program Director, and the CPT Steering Committee
