Voices from Godland, Episode 3: The annunciation in Nazareth

To speak of Nazareth evokes images of the New Testament and of centuries past. There’s the angel Gabriel coming to visit Mary, and of Jesus growing up. But Nazareth today is a modern city, in the heart of Israel. Every day, pilgrims from around the world come to the site to continue searching for meaning in the life of Christ. That search, while deeply personal, can also suggest of broader different ways for reaching peace in the Israel-Palestinian conflict.
