The First Church in Albany. Rooted in Jesus Christ and committed to the city and the people of Albany, New York.
Pastor John Paarlberg will be in Palestine and Israel January 11-24, participating in a study tour, “Popular Resistance and Liberation Theology,” sponsored by Friends of Sabeel, a Christian ecumenical organization seeking justice and peace in the Holy Land through non-violence and education.
As he is able, he will be sending us some updates of his study tour.
On the Palestinian side of the separation wall is a series of posters with stories written by Palestinian women.
These stories of suffering and oppression as well as 'samud' (steadfastness or resistance) are an attempt to bring out the truth of Palestinian life--something the wall tries to hide. The posters are sponsored by individuals and organizations from around the world.
