Martin Luther King, Jr. was exactly right when he wrote in his letter from Birmingham Jail, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” We would like to honor that philosophy by having an outside table where congregants can purchase Palestinian olive oil and Haitian art during our outdoor services.
- With the purchase of Haitian art, you can support the magnificent creative spirit of the Haitian people and provide much needed revenue for their families.
- With the purchase of Palestinian olive oil, you can support Palestinian farmers for whom the olive tree is a Tree of Life. Tree of Life Olive Oil is fair trade and organic, and all the proceeds support academic scholarships for Palestinian youth who attend Bethlehem, Al Quds or Birzeit universities.
By purchasing Haitian art and Palestinian olive oil, please know that you are planting a little bit of hope in both Haiti and Palestine – geographically over 5,000 miles apart, but in the “Beloved Community” envisioned by Martin Luther King, Jr., Haitians and Palestinians are next door neighbors.
