Interfaith Appalacia – The First Jew I Met 18 April , 2013

The First Jew I Met
Excerpt from a story by Chad McKnight, Outdoor Education Coordinator 
 
Read the complete story in the upcoming Interfaith Appalachia Journal, a collection of testimonies, stories, and art from participants and IA community members.

“…[David’s] views were so much different than mine. Not just his religion, but everything. I eat every kind of meat there is, he is a vegan. I am a very conservative republican, he is a liberal democrat. I carry a gun in the woods; he has never shot a gun, and spends most of his time on concrete. I am an orthodox Christian, he is a liberal Jew. How in the world can we get along with each other much less how could I help him bring about world peace?

“Even though it sounds like we would have nothing in common, we quickly became very good friends, and my reservations were eased. I also realized that religion is not worth having, if you don’t share it. Working with IA has given me the opportunity to share what I believe with people I would have never even met otherwise. It also has given me a chance to dispel some of the negative stereotypes about us hillbillies. I have been working with IA from day one, and recently became the Outdoor Education Coordinator, which allows me to show off the beauty of Harlan County to many more people.”

Fighting Unemployment with WF Cameroon 14 April , 2013

In February, WF Cameroon worked on educating local youth about entrepreneurship. 75 people learned how to come up with a business plan and proposal, about sources of raising capital, and things to consider when deciding where to locate a business. Many of them are now aware of available sources of government funding to support them, like the National Employment Fund and Ministry of Youth Affairs. The event also raised awareness on the importance of youth participation in the fight against unemployment.
