Day 11 - Jerusalem: Mount of Olives, Gethsemane, St. Anne's Church, Pool of Bethesda, Garden Tomb, Holy Sepulchre, Southern Steps, Farewell Dinner
Day 11 Jerusalem.
Walking Jesus’ Last Day.
Mt. Of Olives.
Path of Cohanim. Garden of Gethsemane.
St. Anne’s Church. Pools of Bethesda.
Via Dolorosa. Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Temple Southern Steps.
First question we were asked at O’Hare as we began this amazing journey to Israel was, “Do you hear me?” Questions were continued along the way of our rabbi, “Why are you here? Where are you going?”
On the steps of the Temple concluding our days walking the last few days’ of Jesus’s life, our rabbi reminded us that God changed His address from the Temple to live in us. Therefore, we are to go forth as apostles of Christ making disciples of all the nations and neighbors. We are His house, His Bet Av. Be the Temple of God! Be the finger of God!
Sad to leave His Promised Land and this sweet group of friends God knitted together through His Holy Spirit. We will recognize each others voices in Heaven as we sang together in St. Anne’s. Sally recorded your voices to strengthen her journey through her recent desert.
Happy trails to you until we meet again.
Hear O Israel. The Lord is our God. The Lord alone. Love your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your strength. And love your neighbor as yourself. Amen.
