We apologize but we've had to cancel this event due to an illness which has kept
the presenters in Palestine!
We will advise Bridge City attenders via the email list when we are able to re-schedule
On November 14th, the second Sunday, 1 hr before Meeting for Worship, Adult Education is sponsoring the following event:
Lorie and Will Wood from West Hills Friends will be joining us that day.
At 9 AM they will give a brief background about how they come to be voices for the Palestinians and Lorie will tell us about Canaan Fair Trade Interfaith. In her remarks about Canaan, Lorie will also include general principles which apply to Fair Trade, no matter where the farmers live.
That weekend they will just have returned from participating in the fall olive harvest in the West Bank in Palestine and hope to have pictures to go with the stories of their most recent sojourn there. There will be time for Q & A.
After Meeting for Worship, Lorie will treat us to an olive oil tasting with a couple kinds of oil and zaa'tar. Bridge City folks are invited to bring other Near Eastern foods to share during this time of fellowship and continuing discussion
