Visiting the pools at Bethesda


More exploration today. It is Ash Wednesday and that played into one of my highlights for the day. We took the imposition of the ashes from the bishop in an ancient chapel within the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. I will never experience another Ash Wednesday service without remembering this experience.

The highlight for me for today, though, was visiting the pools at Bethesda. That its because it was the Rev's turn for the devotional. How do I explain what it felt like to hear her preach in Jerusalem? It was great for me to watch her do her thing.
From a land that struggles so hard with the concept,
I wish you PEACE.
