December reflections At this time of year our thoughts turn to the Middle East. Bible Society has been working here for over 70 years, and in a region which suffers war, violence and persecution, continues to see unprecedented demand for Bibles and associated books. In the refugee camps of Syria, Lebanon and Jordan, Bible Society distributes food and toiletries and other basic necessities. It supports local churches who offer Bible-based trauma healing, with play therapy for children.
Yasmine is one who fled Syria with her two year old son and husband to Lebanon. Her story echoes that part of Jesus' life that we gloss over in the midst of all the celebrations.
We praise God that light continues to shine in dark places. DL
