We’re excited to invite you to a special St. John’s Pilgrimage to the Holy Land, March 7 -17, 2023. Join us as we journey into the stories of our faith, walking where Jesus walked, boating along the Sea of Galilee, quietly sitting where crowds listened to Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. The itinerary is outlined in this brochure, but suffice it to say, you’ll be amazed at how the story of faith will come alive in new and exciting ways.
A special feature is the chance to spend time with our friends and partners in Palestine. St. John’s has a unique relationship with Christmas Lutheran Church (our partner congregation in Bethlehem) and Dar al Kalima Lutheran University. Through these partnerships, we’ll have access to a deeper part of the story and the chance to form relationships that could last a lifetime. We’ll also encounter some of the “living stones” that make up daily life in Palestine. Time will be spent with Jewish, Muslim, and Christian residents to consider life under occupation, enjoying conversation that goes far beyond the average nightly newscast. And for those who can’t get enough, an optional extension trip to Petra is available.
