This event is an open event including art exhibit and showing of UCC video: “How are the Children?” about Palestinian children in Israeli military detention which will be shown in two segments.
Rev. Loren McGrail is a minister, theologian, and poet/artist who served the YWCA of Palestine as one of the United Church of Christ Global Ministries mission co-workers in Israel/Palestine. Her work with the YWCA focused on advocacy and she was the coordinator of the Fabric of Our Lives Project which calls attention to Palestinian refugees. She served in this capacity for five years and is the creator of this art exhibit. Her art — Assemblage, and writings reflect her witness in the land all call holy. She uses found and broken objects to make art in response to the events that affect her and the communities she has served.
UCC video – “How Are the Children?”
In 2017 delegates to the UCC General Synod overwhelmingly passed a Resolution of Witness calling for an end to the ill-treatment of Palestinian children incarcerated in Israeli military prisons. This is a two part video with Part I offered at 1:00 pm and Part II at 2:00 pm. Additional details, including childcare can be found in the additional information.
