Come and See: Holy Land Tour
 
If you are reading this, you have the great opportunity to be in the midst of something special. You are invited to join us on a pilgrimage to walk in the steps of Jesus, and experience his world. This will forever change how you read the Bible, and hear the stories of faith. You will move beyond just hearing to seeing. The more senses we bring to our journey of faith the better.
       I made my first visit to the Holy Land just last summer. I was intrigued in an intellectual way, moved in an emotional way, and cut to the heart in a spiritual way. Words fail to express the depth of the experience. On the way, each of my fellow prilgrims encountered a place that had deep resonance for them. For some, it was the Sea of Galilee. For others, it was the Church of the Nativity. The Garden of Gethsemene was especially powerful, since there is no doubt about the historicity of the site. Each place offered the opportunity to prayerfully engage the mystery of faith.
       I invite you to come and see with me. I will provide a spiritual foundation for the journey, that might make you more attentive to the presence of God. Imagine a Eucharist by the Sea of Galilee.
       Imagine sitting in the garden where Jesus contemplated his death. Imagine being near the foot of the cross, the tomb and the resurrection. This is the opportunity. Say your prayers. Come and see.
       There is room for 25 travelers. If you are interested in joining us on this pilgrimage, please visit bit.ly/HOLYLAND-BPC2020 for the trip brochure with more details and information about this twelve-day, one-of-a-kind tour.
    If you have any questions about the trip, please contact Don Bogus at (440) 715-0967 or dwbogus@mac.com.
