At the event, Priest David Al-Rihani contended that the Christmas season reminds us that the greatest gift we can give each other is the gift of ourselves, adding that “Christmas represents the peak of history ... Christmas is a time of happiness, joy, peace, goodwill, and grace.”  

The tree lighting ceremony was marked by its inclusivity of children with disabilities as there was a sign language interpreter present. 

Rihani lauded the public and private authorities and expressed his appreciation to HH Prince Mired bin Raad for his continuous communication with the Jordanian Evangelical Congregation through the Higher Council for the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
