- The Reverend Munib Younan, the recent bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land, has shared a memory from his youth. He said he used to earn pocket change or handfuls of candy each Friday night when he would go to the homes of the Jewish families in his neighborhood and turn off the lights inside their homes when they were ready to retire. You see, observant Jews know that doing any work on the sabbath is prohibited in the commandments. While they could turn on lights before sunset on Fridays, turning them off would be working, so it wasnâ€™t something they could do themselves. So, young Munib would go house to house doing the â€œworkâ€ for them.
