Where Have All The Christians Gone?

I was in Bethlehem in December of 2019 at a Sabeel gathering.  The Status of Bethlehem as a Christian presence in the Holy Land is being threatened.  When I first visited Bethlehem in 1983 the Christian population was above 80%. It is now below 20%.  87% of Bethlehem land has been confiscated by the State of Israel.  122,000 settlers live in 22 illegal settlements according to international law surrounding Bethlehem.  Bring a friend to see the film “The Stones Cry Out” and hear the story of Palestinian Christians.
