National Geographic has an article online on the plight of Arab Christians. Too often American Christians think there are two groups in the Holy Land – Jews and Muslims. They forget that we have brothers and sisters in Christ suffering over there who are Arabs.
Last weekend, the group “Little Bethlehem” was at my parish selling beautiful olive wood religious carvings to help support the Christians in Bethlehem and the Holy Land. If you are looking to support Christians in the Middle East, I would recommend buying some of their products.
