The Wheels Get Rolling

Steven Jungkeit reports and reflects on this past October’s Wheels of Justice journey through the American South. The article appears in The Link, a publication from Americans for Middle East Understanding (AMEU). AMEU strives to create in the United States a deeper appreciation of the culture, history and current events in the Middle East through publicizing and amplifying the efforts of other organizations working toward similar ends.  http://www.ameu.org

Steven Jungkeit, Senior Minister of the First Congregational Church of Old Lyme

 

In his literary study “Beginnings,” the late Edward Said cautions against trusting origin stories.  He casts doubt on the possibility of achieving a beginning, for any beginning, whether that of a novel or an idea, is always a fictitious proposition.  We never begin, really, but only continue, following a story that is already underway.  Every story, every idea, every institution, is merely a continuation of what already exists.  And yet stories do begin.  Journeys are set in motion, even if it is impossible to affix a clear origin of that story, of that journey.
 
So it is with the Wheels of Justice, a journey that took nearly thirty people through the American South this past October.  It’s a journey that began in Old Lyme, Connecticut, one that passed through 12 states, while covering over 3,000 miles.  It’s a journey that ended ten days later.

The Tree of Life Honoraria Trust

In January 2013 the Honoraria Trust provided nine scholarships for students from Beit Sahour to go to Bethlehem University.  This is an annual part of our Tree of Life ministry. We are grateful to both the Mission Board of the Old Lyme Congregational Church and to individuals who have made generous contributions to the Tree of Life Honoraria Trust. Without this generosity, these scholarships would not be possible!

Consider a contribution to our Tree of Life Honoraria Trust, a fund that we use to support those organizations in the occupied territories and Israel that are working toward a just and peaceful future for us all. We like to think of these organizations as “parables of hope” and in our annual Tree of Life journeys we’ve had the privilege of witnessing first-hand the excellent work that they do.  Read more »
