Christ in the Rubble: A Liturgy of Lament

2023 Christmas Message by Rev. Dr. Munther Isaac
Dec 23, 2023

This Advent, while global Christians prepare to commemorate the arrival of the Prince of Peace, our Palestinian kin in Gaza suffer unthinkable violence. Their cries for deliverance, echoing those of two millennia ago, seem to be falling unheard in the United States. To see their pain and hear their cries, US Christians must move beyond information to transformation…from webinar to worship. Listen in on the live-streamed worship gathering guided by Rev.

Tears…

Tears in my heart, seeing the suffering for years over and over. Tears drying up, cracking the souls. Despair, hopelessness – tearing up humanity. People once praising peace & ending wars now campaign to incite more suffering & death. They encourage (if not plan) others to force their people to die on the battlefield. Constitutional laws against warmongering and for human-rights violated. Mass media glorifying violence, calling for revenge and dehumanize. Hatred, where only love could help, if ever desired.

Overwhelmed by the global events, we can only focus on our little life and surroundings. We shall not steal others’ belongings, harm others’ life. We shall not even harm others’ dignity and make for a horrible relationship in the first place. Perhaps time to pause and recapitulate to repair all the deeply broken relationships.
