We are hoping our Jewish and Messianic friends are having a bright and peaceful Hanukkah!
We are currently in the third of eight days of Hanukkah , a celebration of the re-dedication of the Temple at the time of the Maccabean revolt  after Antiochus IV Epiphanes desecrated it during the Seleucid empire’s  occupation of the Holy Land. Much of the Maccabean story is about fighting against assimilation into a pagan culture.We can certainly understand this concept today. This video is Benny Friedman’s rendition of Peter, Paul, and Mary’s “Light One Candle” in memory of that victory.
John 10:22-30
