The Kairos Palestine Document
Kairos Palestine: A Moment of Truth
Our movement, United Methodist Kairos Response (UMKR), is named for the landmark document - Kairos Palestine: A Moment of Truth - launched from Bethlehem in December 2009. Kairos Palestine has been called the "Letter from Birmingham Jail" of our time. In this document, along with their profound statement of faith and vivid description of life under a brutal military occupation, the Christians of the Holy Land have asked for meaningful action that will help to end the Israeli occupation and achieve equality and justice for all the people of Israel-Palestine.

With very limited resources, UMKR has made a major impact in the global United Methodist Church.
Groundbreaking divestment and boycott actions by the UMC would never have happened without UMKR's advocacy AND the extraordinary partners and allies who have worked with us and supported our efforts.
