A Holy Land Pilgrimage Day 11
Many pilgrims to the Holy Land will come only once. Some return again and again. Nearly all study pilgrimages at St. George’s College cover what we call “the basics.” We follow in the footsteps of Jesus or visit the places of his wider context. Our imagination before we come the first time, or our experiences after a pilgrimage, can be turned upside-down. Can you imagine Holy Week in drenching sleet? Or bananas growing in the desert? Perhaps your course leader will speak of something that a week ago wasn’t discovered. At St. George’s College we work to stay current and to afford new perspectives. Humans are blessed with the ability to imagine. We thank God that we can change (how’s that going this Lent?) and envision. God’s “power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine” (Eph. 3:20). So where was this photo taken? Every St. George’s pilgrim has been here, but only one group, our Level 2 course in January, saw it from this perspective. Enter your guess in the comments, please, and wait for the place to be revealed at the top of tomorrow’s post. In the meantime, exercise your holy imagination. See something anew, allowing God to work abundantly in you.
