The Diocese of California passed a divestment resolution weekend before this [http://www.diocal.org/governance/diocesan-convention/2014-resolutions#peace ] and Massachusetts (8 November) and Oregon (13-15 November) both have resolutions coming up at their conventions. Maine considered some more around setting criteria for socially responsible investing – both were defeated.

Thank you, Hawaii Diocese, from the bottom of our hearts! I’m sure all Palestinians (and increasingly, many Jews all over the world,)appreciate your solidarity with the nonviolent struggle for peace with justice in Palestine/Israel. Submission isn’t an option. The only alternative to nonviolence in this conflict is violence. So please keep your support coming for a sane alternative to the madness that Israeli leaders are perpetuating.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
