Today we worshipped at Christ Church, Jerusalem, the oldest Anglican (Protestant actually) church in the Middle East. David Pileggi is the rector here and gave the sermon on John 20:19f. It was awesome and the liturgy was Pentecost-oriented and filled with Biblical Hebrew imagery. We weren't the only visitors to Christ Church as three other bishops and an Archbishop, all from Nigeria, were present.

Today is a free day and our group is doing various things -- hiking Hezekiah's tunnel, visiting a monastery, visiting the Western Wall, shopping, resting. Me? I have been reading this afternoon and found a chocolate ice-cream bar at a local street vendor! Shalom from Jerusalem.
