Countdown Begun for Pilgrimage on the Sinai Peninsula
I've begun the countdown to the next pilgrimage: the Sinai Peninsula! Leave on Nov. 12th, arrive in Tel Aviv, Israel on the evening of the 13th, and then on the morning of Nov. 15th, down to Eilat and then over the border to Taba! Walk for the day into the evening, find the camels, and the next three days: camels on pilgrimage!
This is a beautiful part of the world. There are no email connections, no computers, no electric wires...only a stray jet flies overhead now and then.
This desert land is the writing place of those who wrote the Hebrew sacred Scripture and the New Testament texts.
