Herr to speak at Cumberland Valley Relief Center banquet

October 24, 2009

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - The Cumberland Valley Relief Center will hold its annual fundraising banquet Saturday, Nov. 21, at the Kaufman Community Center, north of Greencastle, Pa., at Kaufman Station. The program and dinner begin at 6:30 p.m.

The featured speaker will be Linda J. Herr, Mennonite Central Committee representative in the Middle East for 15 of the past 22 years. For the last six years, Linda and her husband, James Wheeler, were on assignment in Egypt, where, as Linda puts it, "about 20 million (people were) swirling around us in Cairo at any given moment."

As the years in the Middle East passed, Linda developed an insider's perspective on the issues and concerns there.

She plans to share a number of topics "within the scope of our relationships." Her remarks, titled, "Faith-Full Friends," tells about "courageous sisters and brothers with deep faith in Christ who live that out in very different traditions and very familiar struggles."
