The themes of Advent, the situation of Christians in Israel-Palestine at the moment, plus the meeting of the Holy Land Coordination in January 2011 are topics covered in a recently recorded podcast.
This is an interview I undertook for the Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales (CBCEW). The web-link for the the whole 20-minute conversation can be found here: http://www.catholicchurch.org.uk/holy-land-advent-2010 
Supplemental materials on developments in the region and the recently past Special Assembly for the Middle East of the Synod of Catholic Bishops are available on my website (www.epektasis.net ) and will appear on Ekklesia soon.
