From Betty Crowley
There is a window behind the altar in the Church of All Nations where one can see a panorama of Jerusalem. The cross on the altar lines up with the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. Jesus could undoubtedly see where he would carry the cross and ultimately be crucified as events were beginning to unfold. Our time here was one of silent contemplation & prayer.
The second event was when our community of happy pilgrims visited and swam (floated!) in the Dead Sea. At first glance, this may appear in sharp contrast to the morning, but it actually reflects the breadth & depth of our experiences on this trip.How fortunate it is that we can be together in serious contemplation & share joyful moments as well.
