Old City of Jerusalem viewed from Mount of Olives

Old City of Jerusalem viewed from Mount of Olives

On May 5, 2009 a group of pilgrims embarked on several weeks of discovery in the Holy Land. This pilgrimage was organized by the Middle East Work Group of the Presbytery of Detroit.

We visited key biblical and historical sites and learned more about the Bible and the land and peoples. We visited both Israel and the Palestinian Territories and learned about conditions on the ground. We sought out a multiplicity of views and met with Israelis and Palestinians–Christians, Jews, and Muslims.

Worship, Bible study and prayer was an integral part of our life as a pilgrim group, and we  worshiped and fellowshipped with local Christians, the “living stones” of the Holy Land.   We grew in our Christian faith and in our commitment to “the things that make for peace.”

To learn more about our experience, you can read the daily blog entries we wrote from the pilgrim way.

Now that we have returned home, we are eager to share what we saw and heard. We are are available to speak to local church and civic groups.  You can contact us by leaving a comment at this blog or by emailing us.  Please see “About Us” at this blog for additional contact information.

Have Power Point, will travel!
