The editorial of the week of 16/12/2022 with Camille: solidarity, Olivier Giroud, pastor in China, The Chosen on C8


The editorial of the week with Camille is a summary of the four key topics that animated the Christian sphere this week. This is the end of this video format of “the editorial of the week with Camille”, at least for a while! But many surprises await you on our site in the coming months...

Despite freezing cold, many people sleep rough in France. Tuesday evening, near the La Chapelle metro station in Paris, when the temperature was around -2°, 350 asylum seekers on the street demonstrated in the hope of obtaining an emergency accommodation solution.

The following day, a collective of associations published a press release entitled “Towards a black year for people on the street and poorly housed? in which they ask the government to implement concrete actions to avoid, I quote, "the social bomb that awaits us".

In this context of crisis and while the traditional Salvation Army Pots began on December 3 and will continue until the 24, the Protestant organization whose slogan is "soup, living room, hello", reminds us by its action that Christmas, the day on which we celebrate the birth of christ, is also an opportunity to transmit a little hope to our neighbor and to show solidarity.

The Blues won a historic match against Morocco in the semi-finals on Wednesday evening. The France team will therefore face Argentina on Sunday for a third star.

A victory that gives us the opportunity to talk again about Olivier Giroud, whose Christian faith has occupied an important place in the media since the start of the competition. The attacker does not hesitate, in fact, to speak about his convictions and kneels fingers to the sky as soon as he scores a goal.

At the microphone of TF1, last Sunday after the victory of the Blues against England he notably declared: “You know my faith, I have always believed in it. It's God's plan ”, (the plan of God in French Editor's note).

On social networks, several Internet users are already doing, with humor, predictions for the final which will therefore take place on the "day of the Lord". "The final is the day of Lord Giroud will put a hat-trick everything is already written", tweet one of them. “You want to play the final on a Sunday the week before Christmas when Giroud is at his peak?!?! Nan is asking for defeat, ”ironically another user of the social network.

Accused of contract fraud, David Lin is an American pastor who was sentenced to life in prison in China in 2009.

A sentence reduced last month to 24 years in prison following pressure from the Biden government. The pastor who has already spent 16 years in prison should therefore be released in 2030, but his family is worried about his state of health and fears that he will not survive 8 more years behind bars.

On the eve of the Christmas holidays, get ready for a beautiful (and long) evening with The Chosen.

The complete season 2 of the series translated into French will indeed be broadcast on Saturday December 17 from 21:15 p.m. on C8. It will then be available for replay.

I recently had the chance to meet two actors from the series Elizabeth Tabish and Noah James, the interpreters of Marie de Magdala and André. An interview in which they evoke, among other things, this second season, to discover on the InfoChrétienne website.
