PHOTOS: The Annual Women’s Gathering in Bethlehem

BETHLEHEM –  Every year, the women of the churches in the West Bank and Jerusalem joined together to celebrate Advent and Christmas together. This year, the event took place at Dar Annadwa (ICB) | دار الندوة الدولية in Bethlehem.  The theme of the year was “Mary” – not just Mary, Mother of God, but all of the Mary’s present in the life of Jesus.  General Secretary of the Lutheran World Federation, Martin Junge, joined the celebration and addressed the women.  Thank you to all who turned out and who made this such a wonderful event!
