Members of the Natsheh family (Imad Natsheh, shown) have been blowing glass in the hills of Hebron for the past 450 years. The communion set in the foreground is one of 30 used at the 2009 ELCA Churchwide Assembly. The pitcher was made in Bangladesh, the linen was woven in Guatemala, the basket was created in Uganda, and the chalice was hand-blown by the Natsheh family.
