Nazareth | The Sleepytown

by - 8:45 PM

It's 5:30AM. I'm journaling and watching the sun rise over the sleepy town of Nazareth from my beautiful 200 year-old Arabian mansion turned inn-hostel. I guess nothing much has changed since the days of old (apart from the fact that there are no Jewish inhabitants here - it's 70% Muslims & 30% Christians).

If anyone were to claim that the Messiah is now in Nazareth, I think people would still say the same thing they said 2,000 years ago of Jesus the Nazarene: 'Can anything good come out of Nazareth?'

Welcome to my wayfaring world of stories. I’m a traveling musician and music educator from Melbourne living in Kabul, Afghanistan. Join me on my quest to embrace people of peace in tough places, inspire creative education where none exists, spark conversations that challenge the status quo, and collaborate with like-minded young people to catalyze a movement of peacemaking through acts of compassion and creativity among the young and free. As a nomad at heart, my ‘home’ is wherever I journey with people on the ground and discover life on the frontiers.
