The Holy Land

The opportunity of a lifetime has fallen into my lap. I will be spending the next 10 days on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land.  I will see what Jesus saw, pray where Jesus prayed, and walk where Jesus walked (except maybe on the Sea of Galilee), all while following in the footsteps of countless pilgrims who have done the same thing.

I will be there from April 21, 2017 through May 1, 2017.  I will accompany a group from Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Sulfur, LA led by my friend and collegue Mother Ally Perry!

I am hoping to report and journal my trip.  So check back here to see pictures, insights, thoughts, inspirations, reflections and probably some goofs from my time there.

Please comment, share, and check back in.

  1. Michael, You will be in my prayers. As I told you recently I was extremely moved when I traveled with Fr. Gregg Riley and a group from several local churches, including Grace, on a 13 day trip in 2009. We visited not only the Holy Land, but Cairo, Egypt, Greece and part of Turkey as we retraced parts of the multiple journey’s of the Apostle Paul. The whole trip was so very moving and words really cannot describe being where our Lord actually walk and lived out his ministry. I’ll be interested to read what you write. I look forward to reliving my own pilgrimage. May God protect you and bring you back home safe, and spiritually uplifted. Pax et bonum!
