Israel/Palestine Pilgrimage: April /May 2019
On29th April in the early hours of the morning, 6 pilgrims left for a 10 day pilgrimage to Israel/Palestine. Cameron, Julia, Paul, Jenny, Becky and Brain. We back-packed around the Holy land staying in hostels and meeting Some wonderful people along the way. We visited: Jaffa, Bethlehem, Hebron, Jerusalem, Nazareth, Cana, Tabgha, Capernaum, The Mount of Beatitudes, and descended( or rather scrambled) down Arbel Cliff. There are so many highlights and so many challenges for us all but here are just a few:
We all learnt so much about the political divisions in this country which moved us deeply and yet amidst all this are signs of hope for peace and reconciliation.
The sights, sounds and smells of the bustling streets of the Old City in Jerusalem along with the elaborate places of worship were at times overwhelming and yet fascinating with many different traditions grappling for space to worship . In contrast there are more simple reflective places where we found peace and solace: the Shepherd’s field, The Garden of Gesthsemane, the Garden Tomb, the lovely little Old town of Nazareth and the tiny simple synagogue over the site where Jesus started his ministry and the Mensa Christie Church at Tabgha next to the Sea of Galilee:
Then there’s the people we met on way: Marwin: a 3rd generation Palestinian refugee , the Palestinian family who gave us an evening meal, and our”Good Samaritan “ who helped us find food one evening and the kind hotel manager who allowed us into his restaurant even though it was late.
The Eucharists we shared together on the sandy shore of the Sea Of Galilee and under a shady tree after our scramble down the Arbel Cliff.
The beauty of this place with its contrasting landscapes: green and lush with beautiful plants and flowers contrasted with ruggedness and baroness of the desert.
Below is a selection of photos taken by us all at different times.( in order of the places we visited. Becky wrote a daily blog with photos of the days events and these can be seen on our facebook page.

Christ be with me, Christ within me, Christ behind me, Christ before me, Christ beside me, Christ to guide me, Christ to comfort and restore me.
