Join us online for the 15th annual Christmas Lessons and Carols simulcast live between the Philadelphia Episcopal Cathedral in the United States and the Christmas Lutheran Church in Bethlehem, Palestine, on Saturday, December 18th at 10 a.m. EST and 5 p.m. Bethlehem time.  Hear familiar carols and readings in Arabic and English, and a word of hope preached this year by Bishop Sani Azar of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land.

The Episcopal Diocese of Pennsylvania is delighted to host this event as part of its growing covenant partnership with the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem.  This event serves as a fundraiser for the vital work of Christians in the Holy Land, so please consider donating as you livestream.

Finally, hold the Palestinian Christian community in your prayers this Advent.  They continue to bear witness to the love of Christ through their congregations and vital service institutions.  In so doing, they keep burning the light that was lit by Jesus through his birth, life, death, and resurrection, and through the litany of the saints who have ministered in that land ever since.
