2 LUNCH AND LEARN: Conflict In The Holy Land/What Business Is It of Ours? Sunday, March 9th, 12:00 to 1:30 pm Speakers: Rev. Robert Stoddard, Rev. Jenny Warren, Dr. & Mrs. Robert Abel

3 FILM NIGHT: Lemon Tree Friday, March 14th, 6 to 9 pm Gather at 6:00 p.m. Film will start at 6:30 p.m. This is a beautiful and sensitive story that presents the Israeli Palestinian conflict in human terms. In the process it manages to get to the heart of a simple truth: Human beings no matter what culture or background, have the same fundamental needs for belonging, for security, and for love. Lemon Tree explores one of the most reoccurring themes in Israeli films, the theme of boundaries. The lemon tree orchard symbolizes more than just a physical buffer between hostile neighbors: it is a boundary between rich and poor, the powerful and the powerless, Jew and Arab, male and female. Following the film there will be discussion from 8:15-9:00 p.m.
