Gary UMC Spiritual Pilgrimage: A Dual Narrative Perspective

Gary members and friends are invited to spend 8 nights in Israel and the Palestinian Territories with an optional extension tour to Petra, Jordan. This spiritual pilgrimage will explore both land and people. It will provide an understanding of the significance of the Holy Land from the standpoint of Biblical history and why it is important to Christians, Jews, and Muslims today.

Participants will engage sacred scriptures, hear faith and political narratives from various perspectives, and meet people from different faiths working for peace in the land.
