From Jerusalem to Rome
Saying goodbye at dinner was long. No one wanted this to end. Hugging by the bus everyone wanted it all to linger. It was a great thrill personally to lead in devotions, lead in prayer circles (we laid hands on members of a Haitian church from Florida at Caesarea Philippi who lost many family and friends in the quake, at Nazareth we laid hands on our Christian guide Rani, an 80 year old in our group for healing, and a couple grieving their daughter--all in the reconstructed Synagogue in Nazareth Village) and read scripture on all the sites. It really was more like a walking retreat through the holy land. It's had a great impact on me personally—I'll never read scripture the same again, and I can't wait to bring another group on this life changing trip.
