The author of Blood Brothers, Elias Chacour, spoke at the Everett First Presbyterian Church on Monday evening, January 14, 2013.
We are happy to present to you the full recording of Archbishop Chacour's talk. This recording is an opportunity for you who missed him on the 14th to hear what he had to say, as well as for those of you present to hear his words again. His message is a passionate and moving portrayal of a man working for peace in an occupied land. He describes his experiences as a pastor starting with reconciling village factions, building interracial schools and negotiating with the governments of Israel and the United States to achieve truly great consequences. Total time is 45 minutes well spent.
