"2000 years ago, HOPE was born in Bethlehem. This hope is still shining and defying all forms of injustices; racism, occupation, poverty, and militarization."
"When the shepherds went to Bethlehem, they found Mary, Joseph, and the child in the manger. They found real people who have names, who have faces. The Christmas story invites us not to forget the people because it is the people who suffer the most under the systemic injustice. It is inviting us to connect to the people of Palestine and to reach out to the Christian community in Bethlehem. To think of the many people worldwide who suffer under systemic injustice."
