July 1st Free day. A walk to Bethlehem and the Church of Nativity

You may remember seeing photos of the Pope stopping to pray at the wall that now separates Bethlehem ( occupied By Palestine, a people not officially recognized by Isreal ) from Jerusalem (occupied by Isreal).  today I ventured out on my own with a Presbyterian minister from Pennsylvania.  A two hour walk took over four hours as we tried to follow the star to the church of Christ birth in Bethlehem. I'll post photos of the journey. Already, a student here getting his doctorate in international relations between Isreal and the Vatican, off the record, says he sees no solution for this region on the horizon, all sides are without answers... Maybe that is why the pope called for more prayer....
