How is it possible that our time in this special land is swiftly ending? We're at our gate in the airport, anticipating boarding in about 90 minutes.
once home, more photos will be posted of this beautiful area and our adventurous swimmers/waders.
For now, a couple of photos from "The Lowest Bar on Earth"
On a sunny and pleasantly warm day, we head out of Jerusalem for Mass in Bethany, home of Mary, Martha, Lazarus, and our beloved bus driver, Rafi.
From there it was down to the Jordan River to renew our baptismal vows, a lovely lunch al fresco in Jericho, and a stop at Zaccheus' sycamore and a couple other stops before stopping at the Dead Sea. A few intrepid pilgrims donned swim suits and floated in the water, others waded a little, and the rest enjoyed watching it all.
Tonight at dinner, we shared stories of the experience- what an amazing journey!
Once we've returned home, more photos will be posted.
we just renewed our baptismal promises at (and in) the Jordan river!
