Come and See…. Pilgrimage to the Holy Land

June 4-18, 2015

Now the Lord said to Abram, “Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you…”

Our faith tradition places us in a long line of pilgrims, seeking an encounter with the sacred--the things that evoke awe and wonder and stretch our boundaries. Pilgrimage invites us to discover our deepest longings.

Abraham’s descendants invite us to experience their culture of hospitality, to visit the ancient stones and meet the “living stones,” the people of the land today.
