Hello friends . . . grace and peace,
One month from today, we begin our pilgrimage. We covet your prayers. We invite you to journey with us. We long for your comments and “likes and shares” of this blog. One of the best ways we can share this experience with all of you during the trip is for you to keep eyes on this space as we share our thoughts, our pictures, and our hearts.
We are taking this trip because we desire to know more about who Jesus was/is, who we are as his followers, and how we can become more like him as we attempt to live out his teachings. The sights, the smells, the views, and the people of Jerusalem and the surrounding cities, are intoxicating. As we read from the scriptures, and as we stand in the places where those stories took place, we feel drawn further into the heart of God. Our lives are changed.
We hope you’ll follow along. We ask for your prayers. We invite questions and comments. Our goal is to post once or twice more in the coming weeks and then, daily (if not more) once we are on the ground in Jordan and Israel. Every time this blog shares a new post, it will simultaneously be shared to St. Thomas’ facebook page and twitter account. Feel free to follow along via social media as several of us will be sharing on our pages and accounts we well.
