Christmas 2014

Church of the Nativity, Bethlehem
Around the world people of every racial, ethnic, cultural and linguistic background are celebrating Christmas and the birth of Jesus the Christ-Messiah. Christians believe he is the long-expected Messiah who is also given the title in the Book of Isaiah, the prince of peace-the One who will inspire humankind to beat swords into plowshares and spears into pruning hooks, so that no one shall know or learn war anymore. 

Church of the Nativity, Bethlehem
How we long for that peace/shalom, in a troubled world where there are plenty of conflicts and wars, and where hatred seems to be more prominent than love. So this Christmas let us pray for peace with justice for Israel-Palestine, for Jerusalem, for the larger Middle East, and for all nations. Wishing you and yours a very blessed Christmas and happy New Year. Thank you for visiting my blog.
