After I finished my post for this evening, we gathered for a short time of worship and sharing.  This was a really good time since most of the group was Able to share a story from the trip that impacted their thinking about the Bible.  Having just come from Galilee we had opportunity to think abut Jesus and what he claimed about himself.  Ryan led us in “how great the father’s love for us” (an excellent choice) and David Keller, a professor from Rochester College, gave an excellent devotion on how this land of Israel is a part of our spiritual heritage.  After a time of prayer many went out to look at the stars and enjoy a cool desert breeze.

It was a great way to mark the half-way point of our journey through Israel.
