I’m excited about this trip. It will be my first to the land of the Bible, and I can hardly wait to experience the presence of the Lord in those holy places. And I’m excited because I can invite my friends of the Alabama-West Florida Conference to join me in this pilgrimage.
I’m told that you’ll never read the Bible in the same way again after you have walked in the places where God unfolded His drama of redemption. Its scenes will come alive after you have bowed at the manger in Bethlehem, worshipped on the Sea of Galilee, followed the Palm Sunday crowd down the Mount of Olives, knelt in the Garden of Gethsemane, walked the Via Dolorosa, wept at Golgotha, and sung at the empty tomb.
And you can experience all this with people you know and love. I encourage our pastors and lay leaders to become tour hosts and invite the people of your churches to join us and know the joy of a pilgrim.
