Amber's already posted a few pictures from our trip to Israel, and I thought I'd follow suit. I'll try to space it out over a few posts starting with religious life in Jerusalem, particularly the Old City. One day maybe I'll have observations to share about this... but that day's not today. (Are those cheers I hear?) I think the pictures can speak for themselves today.
The Western Wall, on a Monday afternoon.
Prayers tucked into the cracks in the Western Wall.
The Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
Another church in the Christian Quarter of the Old City - can't remember which!
Anamchara is a Gaelic word for ‘soulfriend.’ Wandering Irish monks would form lifelong friendships, overcoming barriers of distance and time to be spiritual confidants and guides for one another. I intend this blog to be an invitation to such friendship transcending time and space. I may not have very much to offer – some of my reflections are mundane, silly, and incomplete – but what I do have, I give freely in the name of Jesus Christ.
