If you'd like a real look at one of our Hearts Aflame Discipleship Journey stops in The Holy Land, Pastor Drew David filmed and edited this Vimeo video from our most recent trip together. It was our first stop at Caesarea Philippi, to the north east corner of Israel, in the shadow of Mount Hermon. "Who Do You Say That I Am?"
We returned home today after our 14th Hearts Aflame Discipleship Journey to The Holy Land. In our one-week tour, we walked 36 miles and climbed 75 flights of stairs. Glorious weariness.
We are considering another journey to Israel in October of 2018. Stay tuned to www.ProjectGalilee.org for new trip details in a few months.
Glad to be in the afterglow of our blessed God-ordered pilgrimage. We crossed the pond arriving in New York after an 11 1/2 hour night flight and then made our last leg to Dulles, D.C. And finally home on the church bus.
Tuesday in the Holy Land proved to be a double-blessing day as we remembered Jesus in Jerusalem and Bethlehem.
I'll let the pictures speak for themselves as we were on The Mount of Olives, in Gethsemane, passed through the Kidron Valley, went to The Shepherd's Fold, the Church of the Nativity, Skull Hill, The Garden Tomb, and ended our day at The Western/Wailing Wall. Holy Land.
Personal success in life for me is to be loved, respected, and appreciated most by the one who calls me husband and the two who call me daddy. I am honored to be the son of a fisherman and humbled to be a fisherman (and a shepherd) for the Son. To help others minimize future regrets is my joy-description. Ultimately, I only exist so that Christ can manifest Himself in/through me. In fact, for me, the Secret of Life is found in these 7 words from The New Testament in Colossians 1:27 -- "Christ in you, the hope of glory." I do not consider myself to be "religious" but I wholeheartedly believe that "when relationship RULES, there's little need for rules!" My first published book was released by Beacon Hill Press, Kansas City, on August 6, 2009. It is titled "Relational Leadership -- What I learned from a Fisherman about Leading a Church." My second book from Beacon Hill Press was released in 2013. Co-written with Dr. Brian Charette it is titled "The Stress Factor -- Finding Rest in an Uneasy World." Finally, not to forget, I was master to a 13-year-old Beagle who passed in 2016 -- The Oreo Pup. I miss him. "...and i wait." Psalm 5:3 GW

Spirit of the Living God, fall fresh on me...
My late, dear, artist friend, David A. Lawrence, painted this dove in the 1970s. It hangs majestically today in my Granny and Granddaddy's old homeplace. Click on Dove Above for David A. Lawrence's tribute page.
From Cradle to the Cross
From His first cry in the manger to His final cry on the Cross, Jesus lived and lives again with His arms-opened-wide saying, "Come to Me!"
