(Rev. Joe Bullington) - That’s the way the Passover Seder ends, and it’s appropriate for the Alabama-West Florida Conference; Bishop Paul Leeland invites the conference to join him in January of 2013 for a pilgrimage to the Holy Land.
It will be a life-changing experience for all who participate. You’ll never read the Bible in the same way again after you have walked in the places where God unfolded His drama of redemption. Its scenes will come alive after you have bowed at the manger in Bethlehem, worshipped on the Sea of Galilee, followed the Palm Sunday crowd down the Mount of Olives, knelt in the Garden of Gethsemane, walked the Via Dolorosa, wept at Golgotha, and sung at the empty tomb.
And you can experience all this with people you know and love. Brochures are available on the conference website here, and also in the Episcopal Office. Pastors and lay leaders are invited to become Tour Hosts to invite their church members to join the pilgrimage. To become a Tour Host, contact Rev. Joe Bullington at firstname.lastname@example.org. Register by mail using the form on the brochure, by phone at 1-800-247-0017, or online at www.eot.travel.
Next year in Jerusalem!
