Rev. Jim Brown was the pastor of First Presbyterian Church in Santa Fe from 1976 to 1987. In the 1980’s he was involved with groups supporting immigrants from Central America, including baptizing a Guatemalan baby one Christmas Eve. In subsequent years he made four trips to the West Bank to work with Palestinians seeking a homeland, including planting olive trees and harvesting olives with Palestinian farmers. While a pastor in Harrisburg, PA the congregation he served played a major role in helping so-called Lost Boys of Sudan make a home in the US. These experiences have opened his heart to an understanding of compassion as “suffering with” the brothers and sisters who come our way.
