Silent Night

Christmas Eve at dusk we and a few friends gathered outside of Bethlehem overlooking a hillside field. As the sunlight disappeared we read the story which occurred here one night nearly 2,000 years ago and afterward sang a few songs. Today, Bethlehem is much different and the situation is, well, a bit crazy. However, it was nice to know that despite the lack of external peace, we can experience internal peace no matter what the situation. Merry Christmas to all!
