Thanks to “Mormon Soprano” for posting the Youtube Video of a Byzantine era Christmas song, sung in modern Arabic (Chanted by: Reader Nader Hajjar, Ottawa). It comes with translations that reveal deep theology.

More important, it revealed a background prejudice in me. Not all Arabic speakers are Muslim.
We have many Christian brothers who worship Christ, often with a depth of devotion that puts this here Christian nation to shame.
As you listen, may you worship, and pray for our brothers in other lands.
