As part of Campaign Nonviolence, Sunday Sept. 25 Spirit of Grace, formerly Mission of the Atonement, in Beaverton, Oregon, hosted a retired Episcopal Bishop and former Board Chair of Sabeel North America, Rev. Canon Dick Toll, as a speaker on Nonviolence and BDS, Boycott, Divest, and Sanction, in support of human rights for Palestinians.  After readings, prayers, songs and Rev. Toll’s speech, 33  people enthusiastically committed on cards to a variety of BDS actions. About 50 people total attended.

The event was co-sponsored by the Holy Land Ministry team.
