Join Us This Sunday, January 13 – Jonathan Brenneman Speaks on Christian Peacemakers Team & Non-Violent Resistance

This Sunday, January 13, the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Erie County will be hosting as our speaker a young Mennonite from St. Mary’s, Ohio, named Jonathan Brenneman, who is doing a year of religious service in the city of Hebron in Palestine.  Mr. Brenneman will be discussing his work with the Christian Peacemakers Team, a faith-based organization that supports Palestinian-led nonviolent resistance to the Israeli occupation.  Visitors are welcome to join us for our 10:30 AM service in the basement of the 1st Congregational UCC, 431 Columbus Ave, Sandusky.  Please enter the church at the glass enclosure to the rear of the building and take the elevator down to basement.

Fair Trade Coffee & Tea will also be for sale before and after the service to benefit the fellowship and the well being of small farm cooperatives & communities.
