Spending time in Bethlehem
We spent most of the 24th and 25th in Bethlehem. Some of us attended a 5 p.m. service at the Lutheran church near the nativity square. Parts of the service was in different languages but the sermon was in English. We sang the songs in our own language since the songs were familiar. To read the sermon given by Bishop Munib Younan, click here. Very interesting.
We walked the old city and sat in manger square enjoying the sunshine and watching the people. We also went into the Church of the Nativity. By the afternoon of the 25th, I was on my way back to Yatta with Christian and Craig, an EA from Australia coming to visit us in Yatta for a few days.
