Welcome to the start page of a PILGRIMAGE OF FAITH, a virtual experience of walking in the footsteps of Jesus! From this welcome page you can embark on an exciting journey of faith through the holy land.
Have you ever visited friends after they went on vacation and you were forced to sit through hours of viewing their slides or videos (“Here I am standing in front of the restaurant. Here I am standing in front of our hotel. Here I am standing in front of a bored donkey. Here I am standing in front of …..” snore)? Well, this Virtual Pilgrimage is a virtual slide show, and you can turn it off at any time and no one will ever know (“virtually” no one, that is!). There are lots of pictures, and this could take some time to get all the way through, but it’s designed not to bore you with where we have been. It’s designed to fascinate you with a personal experience of spiritual growth as you get in touch with what it really means to walk in the footsteps of Jesus.
Visually, you cannot see what it was really like in Jesus’ day, because 2,000 years have passed and churches have been built over most of the places where key events in Jesus’ life occurred. But spiritually you can still get in touch with what it was like for Jesus when He walked through Israel and Galilee. That is part of the pilgrimage experience.
This pilgrimage is about tuning in to God, every moment, in every activity, to receive special gifts, insights, favors, growth, and communication and intimacy with Him. To make this a true spiritual pilgrimage, open yourself to Him in each and every moment as you look at each picture and read every scripture, narrative and prayer. This is a time of GRACE; He will give you more than what you normally receive from Him in the activities of everyday life. To merely look at the sites as a tourist is to waste a very special opportunity.
This is a multi-media presentation. Look for the play button to click for sound effects:
If you want to exit the tour and return later for more, use the sign-in tab that you’ll find at the top of each page to save the place where you left off.
May God bless your journey! Shalom!
