A Note from Bonnie Van Overbeke

Event Date: 
Sunday, October 23, 2016 - 2:00pm - 8:00pm

Please note this upcoming event sponsored by our Southwest Association Bethlehem Partnership along with several other local congregations and secular organizations. Three parents from the Israel Palestine organization called the Parent Circle Family Forum will be coming to Madison Sunday, October 23 to tell their stories of loss and their work for reconciliation between their families and their nations. I know their stories will touch people's hearts and give a human face to the conflict; their stories will also show us the power of the human spirit and how hope can mend hearts and show the way forward out of suspicion and toward understanding and, by the grace of God, even peace. These parents will be speaking at First Unitarian Society Landmark Auditorium, 900 University Bay Drive at 2:00pm.  At 5:00 they will speak with students at an ecumenical worship service sponsored by The Crossing Campus Ministry, 1127 University Ave. Visitors are always welcome to worship with the students. Following worship, students are invited to a light dinner along with a presentation and conversation about the work of The Parent Circle Family Forum from 7-8pm.
