While days one and two were incredible, our first day in the Galilee brought with it an added spiritual depth for me as we entered the land where Our Lord lived and walked. Our first stop was Capernaum.As we began visiting sites from Jesus’ life and ministry, we noticed many more tour groups. It was an amazing reminder of how vast the global church is. Pilgrims have been coming to these places for 2000 years. Our guide told us that Jesus’ room in Capernaum contains engravings and etchings from pilgrims visiting in the first century. After Capernaum, we visited two different churches each commemorating an event in Jesus’ ministry.
We had a beautiful communion service near the water. We were on holy ground and words cannot capture the sacredness of all we experienced in this day.
After a fish lunch, we took a short little cruise around the Sea of Galilee and then visited the Jesus Boat and got to put our feet in the water.
This trip keeps getting richer and will be continued with Day 2 in the Galilee.
