A few days ago Denise, our Community Leader, received the following message from Kathy who is part of the L’Arche community in the Middle East:
A few nights ago was our “night of prayer in the Grotto” – every year during Advent a group of friends spend the night in prayer at the Church of the Nativity. It’s a time when I try to bring friends, family, L’Arche, and somehow the whole world into that little grotto…so still and dark, yet radiating a hope, love and joy that can change the world. I just wanted you to know that you were there with us as we prayed in the candlelit silence.
Advent blessings and love from Bethelehem,
