next year in jerusalem

IMG_7109

anticipation of pilgrimage to

holy land for the christian

state of israel for the jew

and palestine for the arab

jerusalem, ironically named

“foundation of peace”,

salem (shalom) means

“wholeness, unbrokeness”

yet real shalom eludes us all

land divided

walls broken down

relationships strained

how will diverse people live together in sacred space?

who will take a vow of peace and keep a promise?

it is a land of no lesser miracles!


“The Lord watch between me and thee…”   see you when i return!

    why is that peace so elusive….why cant we come together…that diverse group of people…we are working through Daniel on wednesdays and discussing the prophecies in light of current events…it is interesting…also was talking with my oldest son a bit about it and global politics today as we drove up to charlottesville…
