Upcoming Conference Concern (UPDATED)

Because some Mennonites have had a connection with Sabeel, and because Paul Wilkinson, who has been mentioned on this blog, recently spoke in a Mennonite Brethren church in Canada and warned about an upcoming Sabeel conference in that very city, today Mennolite is linking to a post at Olive Press about Sabeel’s upcoming Canadian conference. Originally scheduled for two months from now, it has recently been changed to next spring. The Canadian Friends of Sabeel conference is called Facing the New Jerusalem:
 Face-to-Face with Christian Zionism and with Palestinian Christians, and will be held in a university in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia, Canada. Read about it here:

  1. Thank you for explaining the situation – I was beginning to panic, thinking it was only a matter of 10 days till the anti-Israel hordes descended on us here in Abbotsford… and we weren’t prepared for the battle! So they are making it into a really big event? I want to connect with everyone in the area who is interested in making a strong stand against this hatefest. My husband and I are the BC reps for the ICEJ (Int’l Christian Embassy Jerusalem) and we have many connections with other pro-Israel groups, but I don’t think I know who you are? I don’t see anything on the website… Can you please tell me? If and when this conference does take place, we need to be prepared and have a plan as to how to approach it. Hoping to be in touch, Betty-Lou Loewen
    PS – we’re also very interested in your up to date reports on what is happening in the Mennonite churches!
