In Bethlehem, Palestinian Christians continue to bear witness to their faith this Christmas, as they have done for generations. Once again, let us join our voices with theirs in seeking and offering hope for a better future.

Prayers, readings, and hymns alternate between Washington, DC and Bethlehem via the Internet, bringing together people of different lands, languages, and ethnic backgrounds in celebration of the birth of the Prince of Peace. A special offering will be taken for Bright Stars of Bethlehem, a U.S. not-for-profit charity whose mission is ensuring that Christianity survives and thrives in the Middle East. Donations can also be made online at www.brightstarsbethlehem.org.
