After 24 hours of travel we checked into Scott’s Hotel overlooking the Sea of Galilee.

As every night, we closed our day with worship and communion together. Tonight was very meaningful. We came into God’s presence in St. Andrew’s Church right on the Sea.

Our Team Leader, Tom Jones, invited us each to come forward. As Tom placed a cross around my neck he said, “Greg, my friend, receive this cross in the strong name of Jesus.” Wearing the cross I stepped aside to our Spiritual Director, John Wassem. John placed communion in my outstretched hands with the familiar words, “Body of Christ, broken for you. Blood of Christ, shed for you.”

A very good beginning to our pilgrimage.
