Bridges to Bethlehem

The Middle East Council of Churches proudly presents the Bridges to Bethlehem Christmas documentary series. This series of 12 short documentaries showcases the rich diversity of tradition surrounding the celebration of the coming of the Christ child across the Middle East. Filmed in five countries (Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, Egypt and Iraq), the series represents churches from all four ecclesiastical families of the Council — the Orthodox, Eastern Orthodox, Catholic and Protestant families.

Nine videos have been released already. Stay tuned to MECC’s Facebook page for the remaining three videos — coming soon over the next two weeks!
