Examining what has happened since the Kairos Palestine document (2009) inspired the ‘Iona Call’ – at Pentecost 2012 – to which many in the Iona Community have become signatories. Facing tough questions such as the inheritance of the Balfour Declaration, the implications of Boycotts, Divestment & Sanctions and the phenomenon of Christian Zionism. Listening to stories from the region by recent visitors and those who have creative ways of engagement such as academic links and exchanges, marketing crafts, making music, prayer and politics. Exchanging ideas, informing, challenging, inspiring and equipping for action. Led by Hind Khoury, Mark Braverman and Charlotte Marshall (from Kairos Palestine, Kairos USA and Kairos Britain respectively).
Jan Sutch Pickard, a longstanding member of the Iona community, is a poet and activist.
Warren Bardsley is a founding member of Kairos Britain and author of books on peace and Justice in Israel/ Palestine.
