Please join us in the parish hall on Wednesday, May 23 at 7pm for a visual presentation on this fascinating country and its people with professional photographer and parishioner Chuck Kirchner. While the kitchen will not be open that evening, you are welcome to bring a picnic or other food and/or beverages of your choice. For further information about the presentation, you may contact Chuck directly at email@example.com or 206/780-5671.
Note from Chuck:
Ethiopia has been of intense interest to me for many years. The country’s indigenous religion in the North – the Ethiopia Orthodox Church – and the indigenous tribes in the South – Alaba, Dorze, Karo, Hamer, Dassanech, Aari, and Mursi – have captured my imagination. While traveling to sub-Saharan Africa often means a safari, the cultural and spiritual traditions of this landlocked country spoke much louder. And off I went in January 2018.
