Travel the Holy Land with Our Bishop Ken Carter
10 Breathtaking Days of Biblical Understanding with Bishop Ken Carter
I am excited about the pilgrimage planned for May 2014 with my friend, the beloved teacher Bob Tuttle, and friends from across the Florida Conference and beyond.
We will walk the shores of the Sea of Galilee, study the scriptures in the synagogue in Capernaum, pray on the Mount of Beatitudes, and renew our baptisms at the Jordan River. We will then make our way to Bethlehem, and conclude our time together in Jerusalem, where we will enter the Old City and follow the Way of the Cross.
I invite pastors, teachers, and members of our churches to join us in this profound experience of travel, study, worship and fellowship. There is no way to adequately describe the power of the Holy Land for a disciple of Jesus Christ. Here you will rediscover the reality of the garden, the cross, the empty tomb and the Risen Lord.
I hope you will make this pilgrimage with us May 12th - 21st of 2014!
The peace of the Lord,
Bishop Ken Carter
United Methodist Church

There will be something for the whole family.
