Nazareth postscript

On the way to Galilee this morning Nasser, our tour guide informed us that the huge billowing cloud of smoke we witnessed as we headed from Mt Carmel yesterday morning was in fact coming from what has been officially designated an Israeli national tragedy – 41 bus passengers caught in a massive bushfire , 4000 acres destroyed, 40 000 ordered to leave their homes. A time of great sadness, considering the holiness of Mt Carmel.

    Yeh the fire was coincidental especially when we wondered about the early smoke – yet also a reminder of God and the passage of history, with Elijah having called down fire at this ancient spot to reveal God’s majesty and to then slaughter 400. To reflect on our own land of fires and flooding rains, the natural beauty of the earth with the rarity mountain forest showing the paucity of today’s vegetation in palestine, the loss of the prison bus with my own prison visitation work and the bringing together of other nations (including Russia)to help the afflicted.
