This is a preview of the short film "Resurrection", one of nine featured on the DVD "Salt of the Earth: Palestinian Christians in the Northern West Bank", available at www.saltfilms.net.
Two years ago, Firas, a Palestinian Christian, was an unemployed sweat shop laborer in his home town of Zababdeh in the West Bank. The Melkite church his grandfather pastored remained closed, and his Seminary training unused. That all changed in 2002, when he was ordained to the priesthood. The church has since reopened, a sign of life and hope during a dark time.
