There are many ways to experience the Holy Land. It is hard to imagine a better way than through St. George’s College, Jerusalem. They offer a wide-range of courses, available throughout the year.
We attended one of their introductory courses entitled The Palestine of Jesus, for two weeks in the fall of 2016. We travelled to holy sites in Jerusalem, the West Bank, Galilee and Jordan River with fellow pilgrims from around the world, lay and clergy, in an ecumenical community, rooted in daily worship, spiritual reflection and scholarship.
The facilities of the college were excellent. Located a short walk outside the walls of the Old City, the “campus” included the lovely Cathedral, modern clean residence, dining hall, gardens, Bishop’s residence. The leaders and guides were knowledgeable, helpful and insightful. They know how to offer hospitality and spiritual enrichment.
We are so grateful for the experience and grateful to the Continuing Education Plan which helped us participate in this extraordinary part of the Anglican Communion.
