Fundraising dinner brings Palestine to Comox

Comox Valley Presbyterian Church is hosting a fundraising dinner and talk entitled, A Night In Palestine on Friday, Nov. 8.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of a Kairos Palestine document entitled A Moment of Truth – a significant document written by Christian Palestinians.

In May Comox Valley Presbyterian Church minister, Rev. Jenn Geddes and her husband, Mike Werth, travelled to Palestine-Israel to meet with members of the community who helped write this document, visit some historical sites and engage in meaningful conversations with leaders, rabbis, and members of government about the situation. It was an enlightening experience and they want to share what they saw, learned, and heard.

Their talk will include a slide show of many of the historical and current sites throughout the West Bank and Jordan Valley.

The event will include a delicious menu of Middle Eastern food including falafels, rice, salad and baklava provided by Youni’s Donair. There will also be a craft bazaar with many handmade crafts by members of the congregation. The doors will open at 4:30 for the bazaar with dinner served at 5:30 p.m.

All of the proceeds will go towards the mission of Comox Valley Presbyterian Church. Tickets are $20 and must be purchased by Tuesday, Nov. 5. They are available from our church office, 725 Aspen Rd., 250-339-2882 or email: comoxpc@gmail.com.
