Syriac Songs in Solidarity with Christians in the Middle East

It is no secret that years of warfare and sectarian violence–since 2003 and decades before–have threatened Christian populations throughout the Middle East. Witnessing the unprecedented violence in against minorities in Syria and Iraq especially have given us all pause. Today (technically both Dec 25 and Jan 7), however, is a day of joy we share with our brothers and sisters from the Coptic, Assyrian, Chaldean, Armenian, Maronite, multiple Orthodox as well as Catholic churches. Merry Christmas – and may there be ‘peace on earth and goodwill toward men’ (Luke 2:14).
