Have a Blessed Holy Nativity Fast

by Maria C. Khoury, Ed.D.

Dear Friends of Saint George Taybeh,

As I stared at my key board for over a month, I could not seem to write a word about the terrible conditions in Israel/Palestine. I am simply just shocked. It is September 28,2000 all over again when the 2nd uprising started. People are fed up and cannot tolerate occupation anymore. The non-violent action on the ground has gotten little attention so its seems violence grabs the media. I have my own personal problem of being denied a three month visa so I am forced to travel and try my luck in returning home next week.

I will offer a discussion following vespers at 6:30 pm, Saturday, Nov. 14, 2015 at St. Mark Orthodox Church (7125 River Road, Bethesda, MD 20817, vesper service at 5:30 pm).

I will pray at our sister church of St. George in Bethesda for Sunday Liturgy and hope to have a wonderful fellowship with the Sunday School children. Let us all pray together for a miracle to have our world guided by the True Light of Christ. I feel we have gone back to the time of St. George and the early centuries in witnessing for Christ, the prince of Peace and the salvation of the world.

With sincere good wishes for a blessed Holy Nativity Fast as we prepare our soul for our Savior,
maria
