JERUSALEM, December 20,2010 – “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will among all people!” (Luke 2.14). It is from this proclamation of peace and good will that the Patriarchs and Heads of Local Christian Churches in Jerusalem begin their Christmas Message 2010. And the threads of praising God and hope for peace and reconciliation continue throughout.
“We praise God for the witness of all the heavenly host in their joyous proclamation of God’s desire for peace on earth that good will among all people will prevail against the darkness of sin.”
But the Christmas Message of the Heads of Churches contains not only hope for peace and reconciliation, but also call to action: “We believe that hope for peace and reconciliation requires our active participation as people of faith.”
And in the active hope for peace and reconciliation, the Heads of Churches in Jerusalem speak of their participation in the Council of Religious Institutions of the Holy Land (CRIHL) and the work of Christian, Jewish and Muslim leaders together.
