Featuring dance, poetry, music, film, and art from Palestine, the festival will highlight the ministry of Christmas Lutheran Church in Bethlehem and the Dar al-Kalima College. The church and college work to educate and facilitate the growth of art and culture among the Christian Palestinian community of Bethlehem during the current challenging social, economic, and political climate. Events will take place at Westminster Presbyterian Church, Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Minneapolis, the Woman’s Club of Minneapolis, Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran in Apple Valley and Central Lutheran Church in Minneapolis. Most events are free and open to the public.
