The Holy Land is beautiful, meaningful and complicated. Steeped in history, it is a place shared by many ethnic and religious groups. Stories from the Ancient Near East, including the Bible, tell of a land that has been shaped by war, trade, religion and revelation. Rev. Jana Reister and Rev. Anne Weirich (pastor at College Drive Presbyterian Church in New Concord, OH) will lead a pilgrimage to the Holy Land January 14-25, 2019—and you are invited.
This pilgrimage will give travelers the gift of exploring this complexity as important archeological, Christian, Muslim and Jewish sites are visited. The contemporary issues of territory and water, freedom and control will also be experienced and discussed with grassroots organizations working for the rights of all people.
