A word from Anthony Bailey OBE
Some years ago, on what was my first visit to the Holy Land, I made that all important pilgrimage to the birthplace of Jesus Christ – the holy city of Bethlehem.
Since childhood I had dreamt of visiting this city for it represented the birthplace of an important part of my identity as a Christian. Looking back, it was a visit profoundly and spiritually moving and yet deeply shocking and distressing in equal measure.
