Good Shepherd Lutheran-Jericho, VT to Host Palestinian Christians Documentary Film on May 16
Good Shepherd Lutheran Church in Jericho is pleased to host a showing of the film The Stones Cry Out: Voices of the Palestinian Christians on Wednesday, May 16 at 6:30 pm. The 56-minute documentary will be followed by discussion led by Mousa Ishaq, a Palestinian-American who is a member of Ascension Lutheran Church in South Burlington. Donations for the film’s director will be accepted.
Christianity was born in Palestine two thousand years ago, and from there it spread throughout the Middle East and to the rest of the world. Many are unaware that Christians still live in the land. For 70 years the Palestinians – Christians and Muslims – have suffered displacement, expulsion, wars, occupation and oppression. The voices of Palestinian Christians have all too often been drowned out in the turmoil of events. This is their story, in their voices, from the Nakba (the “Catastrophe”) of 1948 until today.
Good Shepherd is located at 273 VT Route 15, Jericho; the facility is ADA accessible. For more information, contact Jan Steinbauer at 899-3525.
