Come and hear of courage and tenacity from people who have wandered far and wide in search of a new home and a safe place to raise their families.
At 5:30 p.m., there will be a free Middle Eastern dinner prepared by refugee families. Donations are gladly accepted.
After dinner, we will hear stories from refugees. This month’s storytellers are:
Khalil, an Muslim Iraqi who worked with the U.S. Military
Maurice, a Christian asylum-seeker from Palestine
Ban, a Muslim Iraqi woman who lived in Jordan as a refugee before coming to the U.S.
Shujaat, an Afghan who grew up in Pakistan as a refugee and was in a refugee prison in Indonesia before coming to the U.S.
An optional Maundy Thursday service will be held in the Sanctuary at 8:30 p.m., which will include the opportunity to participate in a foot washing.
This event is co-sponsored by the Gathering and Bethany Presbyterian Church in conjunction with World Relief.
All are invited to attend this important and eye-opening event.
