PCUSA Divestment Revisited

Jim Berkley brought the letter below to my attention at The Berkley Blog. Many of you know that the PCUSA General Assembly voted last June to begin considering divestment in Israel because of the security wall they were building. This has led to a firestorm of protest from Jewish groups and many Presbyterians. I agree with Jim that these Presbyterians from the Presbytery of New Covenant (Houston area) have crafted a well thought out response in the form of a letter.

Thanks Will. I had not seen the response. I still stand by my appreciation for the New Covenant Letter.

Agreed. I think they did a lot of work on this.
