The Holy Land Visits
Don't Think of a Visit to
The Holy Land as
a Once in a Lifetime Experience.
Think of It as an Experience to Live Over and Over Again.
See the Holy
Land as a Place
To Refresh Your Body, Your Mind and Your Soul.
Christians think of a visit to the Holy Land as a once in a
lifetime event . . . at best.
Our Holy Land Visits Project is trying to change that kind of thinking
and convince people to start thinking of the Holy Land as a place to go
to refresh their mind and their body . . . as well as
think of it as a place they WANT to visit over and over again and not as a
place they SHOULD visit once.
A place to which to connect, and not as a place to visit as they would a museum.
Yes, of course, the Holy Land is home to some of the most precious historic
places and structures of our Christian heritage. And they should be
visited for the inspiration and transformative spiritual experiences they
But visitors should not miss the opportunity to meet and connect
with Christians who live there and the Christian communities that have been
situated there since the dawn of Christianity.
Nor should the miss the
opportunity to learn about the Jewish and Muslim societies, and the Israeli and
Arab societies in which these minority Christian communities live.
And the Holy Land is also a place to enjoy. Christians visitors should
consider partaking in these enjoyments and thereby make greater the likelihood
they will return. These can include beach activities, hiking, biking,
(affordable) art galleries, opera, ballet and fine (affordable) restaurants,
among other things.
