While all the politicians are fighting over the best way to attain peace, Chicagoans have a chance to listen to someone with some real experience of peacemaking in one of the most conflicted areas on the globe.
Melkite Catholic Archbishop Elias Chacour (the Melkite Archbishop of Galilee!) will be in Wheaton on May 17. He will be speaking on "The Future for Peace: A Model for Change" at a breakfast at First Presbyterian Church. Tickets (a pitiful $10 each) are limited! Call 630-668-5147. (The talk begins at 8:30 a.m.) I'd be there, but I'm giving a talk here that morning.
