A Christian, a Jew and a Muslim are going to the Holy Land. Will you join us?

I will confess here and now that I’m not one of those people who has always wanted to visit the Holy Land. Images of over-crowded tourist traps and of holy sites that have had huge churches built over them, let along the politics, have always put me off.

But this is different. I’m going to be visiting some very special places in the Holy Land with a group of Christians, Jews and Muslims from East London. And, at a time when faith is a matter of such tension around the world – and in East London, where people of different faiths live side-by-side – this is a risky and exciting thing to be doing. We will be learning from each other, hearing each other’s stories, and sharing the things that really matter. I am really looking forward to talking about Jesus Christ with Jews and Muslims (and of course the Christians in the group) in the very places where he called and taught his first followers. It’s going to be a very special trip.

If you think you might like to join us on this adventure, please do get in touch with me. My email address is a.westham@chelmsford.anglican.org and I’ll be glad to hear from you. See below for more details.
