For many years I’ve wanted to take a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. I’ve actually had the opportunity to go before, but I didn’t want to go unless Lora could come with me. I felt like we needed to experience it together for the first time. So I waited. But the wait is over. I’ll set foot in Israel for the first time in 24 hours.
This is not a vacation. It’s a pilgrimage. I think it was Saint Jerome who called the Holy Land the fifth gospel. I can’t wait to read it. I’ll try to instagram a few pictures while I’m there!Feb 23, 2013 | Mark Batterson
