Conference members and friends have a unique opportunity to hear the Rev. Lloyd Nyarota, United Methodist clergy from Zimbabwe on Friday, Jan 24 at 7 p.m. at Taylor UMC in Oakland, 1188 12th Street, Oakland, and on Saturday, January 25 at 4 p.m. at the California-Nevada UMC Conference Center, 1276 Halyard, West Sacramento. Through a ministry committed to community development, social justice, and human rights, Rev. Nyarota authored, Religious Leadership In National Political Conflicts: Bishop Abel Tendekayi Muzorewa and the National Struggle against Colonial Rule in Zimbabwe, published in 2013. Rev. Nyarota has visited Palestine’s occupied West Bank on behalf of United Methodist Kairos Response. Drawing on his advocacy for human rights in Africa, Rev Nyarota will address the parallels of the African and Palestinian struggles for human rights and the need for the United Methodist Church divestment movement to end the Israeli military occupation of Palestine.
