Pray for Peace in Christendom
It’s Easter and so it is the season for fights to break out at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem. The site of Jesus’ tomb is also the site of annual brawls over which Christian group controls which square inch of floor in the building. It’s gotten so out of hand that the groups in the church cannot decide where to place a fire exit door (there is only one way in and one way out). And a ladder put up in the 19th century is still standing in the same place because the groups can’t decide who is responsible for removing it. If these fervent believers can’t get along in one of the most important religious shrines in the world, then what hope peace on earth?
Here are two links to stories about the situation in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.
This story is about the problem of creating a fire exit door.
This story describes a brawl that occurred several years ago.
