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.

Kairos Palestine Study Materials
These are a great way for your congregation or church group to learn about Israel/ Palestine from our fellow Christians in the Holy Land.
The Israel-Palestine Mission Network (IPMN) of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has an easy to use three-week
study plan (below) that you can order online for a minimal cost at their website.

Giving Changes the World
With limited resources, UMKR has
had a remarkable impact in the global United Methodist Church! Historic divestment and boycott actions could not have happened without the vital support of those who believe in the cause of Palestinian rights. Please give whatever you can today, so that our work can continue. And rest assured that every donation, large or small,
helps the cause!
Today Kairos Palestine is a continuing movement of the Palestinian Christians, with responding movements in over twenty countries. Learn about current Kairos Palestine activities and find more resources (in many languages), as well as their press releases at their website, which we recommend you visit: http://www.kairospalestine.ps
