Bethlehem Day 1: The Church of the Nativity

The church is obviously under restoration.  It is shared by 3 groups- Greek Orthodox, Armenian, and Roman Catholics.  Each chapel is very different.  This mosaic is under the scaffolding at the entry- will be stunning when renovation is finished.  This is the church built on the site of the manger where Christ was born, the exact spot it covered in a silver frame in the floor.  More pix to follow when I get home.  Phone battery died before I could catch it.
