This is our olive wood creche, that my sister Hilary brought home from Bethlehem for us. While we were in Bethlehem we bought several special pieces, including a nativity scene for dear friends, but this one Hilary picked out. I have vivid memories of standing on the roof of a building just outside Nativity Square, the view dotted with Christian churches, Muslim mosques, and Jewish temples. It was also in Bethlehem that I experienced the most profound moment of a trip that was jammed full of extraordinary experiences. I love seeing this nativity scene on our kitchen counter every morning.
