Holy Land Journal: Pilgrims we depart

Crosses etched in the walls of
a church by pilgrims during
the Crusades.
JERUSALEM -- This is my lasting posting from the Holy Land. We depart today for the long journey homeward. At some point in the next few days I will offer a few words of reflection about our journey. My instincts tell me that it will take a lifetime to understand the full meaning, and that to begin to understand, I must have some distance from this place.

Please keep us and our fellow pilgrims in your prayers, and please pray for the peace of Jerusalem and all the world. Blessings to all.

-- Jim
