Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Palestine/Israel Network (PIN)?
EPF/PIN is a growing network of Episcopalians, mindful of the promises contained in their baptismal covenant and committed to peace and justice in Palestine/Israel, who wish to take specific advocacy steps they hope will contribute to a just peace in the region.
What is the Episcopal Peace Fellowship (EPF)?
EPF is a national organization connecting Episcopalians who seek a deliberate response to injustice and violence and want to pray, study and take action for justice and peace in our communities, our church, and the world. We are called to do justice, dismantle violence, and strive to become peacemakers. For more detailed information on the many things EPF does, visit its website www.epfnational.org
What is asked of EPF/PIN members?
EPF/PIN members are asked to commit themselves to active engagement in education, support and advocacy for a just peace in Palestine and Israel and to partner with other faith communities and secular groups who share PIN’s purpose. What form each of these takes will differ with each person and their context.
How Can I Support EPF/PIN?
We welcome everyone who is called by our Mission Statement to join our efforts to seek just peace in Palestine and Israel. The work we do in education, advocacy within the Episcopal Church, and supporting allies and friends is accomplished by a part-time staff person and our dedicated team of volunteers. Their work is made possible by the financial gifts of our supporters. We receive no financial assistance from the Episcopal Church, so we are indeed completely reliant on donor generosity. Donations made automatically each month are particularly helpful in our long-term planning, but any gift has an impact, is warmly appreciated, and is considered as charitable giving. Please join us, we welcome your support!
