First Lutheran Church trip to the Holy Land

Three years ago I woke up in a foreign land to the sound of the call to prayer ringing through the valley. I sat outside and watched the sun rise over Old City Jerusalem and I knew I was in a holy place. Later that day, the ringing of the church bells and the call to prayer filled the city as two of the three religions that occupy the land called it’s people to prayer and it was overwhelmingly beautiful. I was forever changed by that trip and I cannot wait to introduce others to the incredible beauty of the land we call holy and the deep generosity of people who live there.
