a few more rose petals please

Monday September 8th, Ezekiel 33:  10 "Son of man, speak to the people of Israel. Tell them, 'You are saying, "Our sins and the wrong things we have done weigh us down. We are wasting away because we have sinned so much. So how can we live?" '  11 "Tell them, 'When sinful people die, it does not give me any joy. But when they turn away from their sins and live, that makes me very happy. And that is just as sure as I am alive,' announces the Lord and King. 'So turn away from your sins! Change your evil ways! Why should you die, people of Israel?'  Hamas is lobbing a few small rockets into Jewish territory and Israel is responding by sending in the fighter jets and bombs.  In many ways it is like shooting fish in a fish bowl.  Gaza is a walled-in prison, and even the illegal tunnels offer little in the way of escape for the children.  The world often claims the “rightness” of one side or another.  While the world is watching Gaza, Israel is stealing land around the historic birth place of Jesus.  In the middle of all the chaos, some guy is teaching Israeli and Palestine children to dance with one another.
