The Final Day We had the pleasure of staying last night at the glorious Titania Hotel in Athens. The dining room provides a spectacular view of the city and the Acropolis. This morning after breakfast we were all tested (via nasal swab) for Covid-19. THANKFULLY we were all negative, which means...

Day 10 - Athens, Parthenon & Mars Hill

posted on Friday October 22 2021 at 10:00 pm UTC

Last night we shared with the group about the impact of this remarkable Bible tour of Turkey and Greece.  What was evident to us was the impetus of the Holy Spirit that propelled Paul to evangelize to worldly, pagan cultures.  This same Spirit is present to us, to...

Exodus from Thessaloniki Eisodes to Philippi Devotions on the bus were from Thessalonians 1 and 2 emphasizing Paul's focus on Faith (past), Hope (future) and Love (present). We were challenged to reflect on the people who poured into our lives, bringing us to where we are today. Many of us...

posted on Wednesday October 20 2021 at 7:00 pm UTC

Hi, friends and family. Thanks for following our trip so far. Today was a long travel day. We left our hotel in Turkey at 12:30 am and drove to the airport. A quick flight brought us back to Istanbul and another flight had us in Greece by 9 am. We took some time to rest until mid-afternoon and then enjoyed...

Day 07 - Ephesus & Ephesus Museum

posted on Tuesday October 19 2021 at 5:00 pm UTC

Okay. We’re confused. This is the blog for day 8 – or is it day 9. Or maybe only day 7. By this time in our trip no one is quite sure what day it is. All I know I that my Google calendar says it’s Day 9 while our Blog counter has us only at Day 7. I think all any of us really...

Day 06 - Pergamum, Rug Factory, Evening Cruise on the Aegean

posted on Monday October 18 2021 at 8:00 pm UTC

We started the day with a devotional on Ephesians 2 about how Jesus has healed us of our sinful nature. Then, still in the shadow of the great ancient city of Pergamum, we visited the Healing Center of Asclepion which was named after Asclepius, the hero god of medicine. People coming to the facility...

Day 05 - Sardis & Pergamum

posted on Sunday October 17 2021 at 5:00 pm UTC

Today we started off in Sardis and we were given a lot to process. Sardis was a thriving city with an indefensible wall to fortify their city. On the surface Saris was doing everything right. We learn that Sardis got confident and lazy, maybe even fell asleep in defending their city. This lapse in...

Day 04 - Aphrodisias & Philadelphia

posted on Saturday October 16 2021 at 8:00 pm UTC

  (Meander – mē-ˈan-dur: to travel continuously). This morning we departed our pretty little hotel in Pamukkale to head west. For many of us, a good night’s rest was needed after several days' trying to adjust to the time zone and 10,000-plus-steps-a-day. For those of us that...

We had a fabulous day, beginning to end! We started the day watching the sun come up while overlooking the city, white calcified cliffs and the surrounding mountains in a hot air balloon.  We are in the popular tourist site of Hierapolis, which features spectacular calcified cliffs and...

Day 02 - Pisidian Antioch & Colossae

posted on Thursday October 14 2021 at 6:00 pm UTC

The text came alive to our imaginations again today as we traveled a route that would have taken Paul and Barnabas weeks to walk. After traveling through the Taurus mountains to the city of Yalvac last night, we toured both the excellent museum and excavated ruins of Antioch of Pisidia this morning,...

Day 01 - Southern Coast of Turkey

posted on Wednesday October 13 2021 at 7:00 pm UTC

After a good night of rest, we started our first full day with breakfast and a nice walk to the Antalya Harbor, which was closer than many of us realized. At the Harbor we read from Acts 13 and 14 and envisioned Paul using this harbor for God's mission of taking the Word to the world. This is also...
