And the journey begins....
We left the Atlanta Airport at 6:00 pm on Wednesday 02/09....after 10 hours of flying + 6 hours of time difference, we arrived to Frankfurt at 10:00 am on Thursday 02/10.... with only 1 hour of connection + 4 hours of flying + 1 hour of time difference, we arrived to Tel Aviv at 4:00 pm...... and after 3 hours on a bus ride, we finally arrived to Tiberias at 7:00 pm.
The place were we are staying is called “The Scotts Hotel, St. Andrew’s Galilee”. This place used to be a hospital sponsored by Presbyterians from Scotland, and know they use the facilities as a hotel. Therefore, the architecture and style are amazing, you can also sense a very spiritual environment, although all the male employees are wearing those funny skirts (respectfully).
During the 16 + hours that I was in the airplane and bus, I ‘got’ to spend all my time with John’s Wesley biography and theology, and I was able to read the 374 pages of the book ‘The Burning Heart, John Wesley:Evangelist” by Skevington Wood. (Note that it wasn’t because I love to read, but a requirement for a class; although it was very enriching).
So I’m exhausted, but before I crash in my bed, I want to share with you my five favorite quotes from John Wesley that I read today:
1.- “Preach faith till you have it; and then, because you have it, you will preach faith.”
2.- “You have nothing to do but to save souls.”
3.- “This is the great work; not only to bring souls to believe in Christ but to build them up in our most holy faith”.
4.- “ Your profession of faith must be evidenced in sanctity of living.”
5.- “Oh why is it that so great, so wise, so holy a God will use such an instrument as me.”
I hope these phrases can challenge you as they are challenging me.
