On our way to see Elijah’s viewpoint on Mt. Carmel, we stopped for lunch in a Druze village. This is a photo of a picture that was hanging on a wall in the restaurant. For me, it presented an invitation to learn about a people that most of us probably know nothing about. I was acquainted with some members of a Druze family in southern Alberta. They were kind and generous. Beyond that little bit of personal knowledge, everything else I know about this sect comes from Google searches and Wikipedia articles.
