The Pastor’s Pen

What an opportunity that has been set before us!

We have been invited to assemble a group that will make a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. From the earliest days of Christianity, the concept of pilgrimage has been an important one. A pilgrimage is simply intentional travel for spiritual purposes.

But wait there’s more! We will be travelling with other United Methodists from Mississippi as well as our very own Bishop James Swanson. Have you ever wanted to walk in the land of Jesus? Have you ever wanted to visit historic places like the Sea of Galilee, Bethlehem, and Jerusalem? Here’s your chance!

The 12-day trip will be February 5-16, 2018 and will cost $3,598.00. Included in the cost: Round trip international airfare from Memphis, tours and guided sightseeing, daily breakfast and dinner buffets, first class hotels, and much more.

On Sunday, February 26 at 4:00 p.m. in the UMW Room we will have an information meeting. I look forward to seeing you there as we discern this magnificent opportunity to make a pilgrimage to the Holy Land.
