Called to Be Salt and Light: Open Up Space to Stand for Peace

 — May 10, 202410 mai 2024

The Canadian Council of Churches’ Commission on Justice and Peace deplores the violence and cycle of reprisals in Palestine and Israel that is leading to thousands of lives lost and even more death, suffering, and trauma to come.

We call on Christian communities across Canada to be salt and light in a way that opens up space to stand for peace with justice for all.

We, the Executive Committee of the Commission, make this call with the support of all the members of the Commission on Justice and Peace.

Donna Geernaert (Chair)

Estee Lau (Vice Chair), The Salvation Army in Canada and Bermuda

Ryan Weston (Vice Chair), Anglican Church of Canada

Allyson Carr (Vice Chair), The Presbyterian Church in Canada
