The Digital Story of Christmas Nativity

A very clever take on the Christmas Nativity story.

How social media, web and mobile tell the story of the Nativity.

Christmas story told through Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Google, Wikipedia, Google Maps, GMail, Foursquare, Amazon …

Times change, the feeling remains the same.

Some things sadly never change. Bethlehem was under Roman occupation then, suffers under Israeli occupation now. The Palestinians of Bethlehem live in what amounts to an open prison surrounded by an Apartheid Wall. Please spare them a thought as you celebrate Christmas. [see Bethlehem Hidden from View]

All the more tragic that there are churches like St Mary’s in Guildford that support the apartheid regime and ethnic cleansing by having on sale Israeli so-called Peace Oil. [see Peace oil or taking the piss?]

Many thanks to Paulo Coelho who posted this unusual take on the nativity on his blog.

    Dear Paulo and All,
    Yes, of course I shall think about….
    But why particularly at X-Mas time ?
    My thoughts, interest, compassion go out every day of the
    year to all who are suffering, whilst being aware at the same
    time of the billions worldwide who don’t hit the headlines,
    are never mentioned by/in the media…..not ‘exciting/dramatic’
    enough to capture public attention and that of the media…?
    But they exist too, anonymous and forgotten…
    Love Sue
