Here are a selection of photos:
The shores of Galilee
Where Peter confessed his love for the Risen Christ three times - and promised to feed his sheep. May we feed them too.
Mount Tabor - where Jesus shone in glory at his Transfiguration and where we pray we too may shine with the love of Christ.
Jacob's Well; the place of the living water; which we drank from. We heard how Jesus met the woman of Samaria (John 4 v5-15) and transformed her life and that of her community. We prayed that we too may be transformed by the living water.
Manger Square in Bethlehem, by Night. Where in the darkness of one night the light of world was born. Bethlehem, where God got real.
The War Graves in Jerusalem where one of Hormead's soldiers in commemoration - Private Canning. We prayed for peace.
Dominus Flevit - where Jesus wept over Jerusalem - tears are still being shed. The church is designed to represent a teardrop.
A rather muddy river Jordan, where in renewing our Baptism promises, our muddy lives were made clean.
Church of the Holy Sepulchre - where love won. We pray that love will soon win out in this divided and pained city.
