Holy Week & Easter
We are Christians because of the events of what we now call Holy Week. Jesus experienced highs and lows, the betrayal and judgment, death, and the power of God to resurrect him to new life. There is power for us is in realizing our lives mirror those realities. The more we engage in the services of Holy Week the more Easter will become a celebration of New Life.

“Dessert and a Movie” With Gaza Filmmaker Fida Qishta
March 15, 1:00 pm
Milton United Methodist Church
241 Northside Drive, Milton, WI

Where Should the Birds Fly tells the story of Mona Al Samouni, a young girl who survives a deadly rocket attack, and Fida Qishta, a videographer, teacher, and human rights worker. Through the lens of Fida’s camera we see the many sides of Gaza -- the border, the lives of farmers and fishermen under siege, the devastation of military attack, and the effort to pick up shattered lives. We are given an intimate look into the struggle of two young women to maintain humanity, humor and hope, and to find some sense of normality in a world that is anything but normal.
