Holy Land Pilgrimage 2017 – Day 5

What an amazing day in the Holy Land. We began in Bethlehem and ended in the City of David. We saw the Shepherd’s fields and the church dedicated to them. Then we saw the Church of the Nativity, one of the oldest churches in Christendom dating to around 325AD. After time in Bethlehem we visited the Upper Room which is in the City of David as well as the Tomb of David which has been made into a synagogue where Ultra Orthodox Jews pray and study the Torah in the presence of King David’s tomb.

Here is a link to a video of our singing in the Shepherd’s Church. Great fun singing a basilica with such great acoustics.

I will try to go back and get videos from Days 3 and 4 on which we didn’t have strong enough wi-fi to upload. More to come as I get time to upload pictures…
