Why Go to Palestine
I first met John Herndon at the Book Reading event at Left Bank Books in November 2005. He recently invited me to give the sermon at his church, First Unitarian of Alton, Illinois. The title of the sermon, available online, was “Why Go to Palestine.” I had a spirited exchange with folks after the service and was happy to sell several bottles of Palestinian olive oil, a project my friend Dianne Lee has organized to benefit Palestinian children in refugee camps. I was also glad to know that my friend Rhoda Kuzier will be speaking on Islam at this warm and hospitable community on February 25th.
