To Cana of Galilee – on Foot!

by Steve Ray on September 5, 2010

Tomorrow, America’s Labor Day, I plan to run from Nazareth to Cana of Galilee (and back) mentioned in John 2.

Mary walked from Nazareth to Cana, as did Jesus and his disciples. There was a wedding and Jesus turned water into wine. I’ll have some good Israeli wine at the end of the run.

We’ll see how it goes since it’s very HOT here, but hey, they did it! And, I was just at a wedding here yesterday!

Ever Hear the Muslim Call to Prayer?

by Steve Ray on September 5, 2010

Ever hear the Muslim Call to Prayer coming from a green-lighted minaret attached to a mosque?

If not, enjoy this 20 second segment of the 10 minute call blaring from speakers five times a day — including 4 AM, nice new alarm clock, eh?

Much of the world, including the Christians in Nazareth, know exactly what I’m talking about. Listen and you will know what to expect from a mosque being built near you!

I just recorded/videoed this while leaving the restaurant in Nazareth.

Hot! A bit of a scuffle with two Arabs. Good time and great adventure. A few pictures of many below, including the stadium where Pope celebrated Mass here in Nazareth in 2009.
