Today we left Jerusalem early in the morning and headed south by southwest, to where Samsom mixed things up with the Philistines,
And there are lots and lots AND Lots of ruins, stones, digs, some going back 3,000 years and more, but for me it is special just being in the neighborhood. David walked here! Or Abraham, or Joshua, or Paul, and of course Jesus. A reminder that it really happened. And it happened right here. It grounds your faith, and encourages you to ACT like it was real.
And of course there are lots of stairs and lots of walking. My calves are barking at me but the weather has been beautiful.
Church tomorrow at St George’s Cathedral, lunch at the American Colony Hotel (look it up on Wikipedia), and then off to meet with Kids4Peace Jerusalem!
Thanks for checking in!
