by Steve Ray on October 31, 2010

IMG_2301Check out my running trip on http://t.co/i6v9Zm6: 2010-10-31 Bethlehem’s Biblical Sites http://t.co/vkiYzfShttp://t.co/vkiYzfS.

I started out Sunday morning early and ran through the Church of Nativity, down to Shepherd’s Field, to the Milk Grotto, the Wells of David and more.

I met some friends along the way. I ended the morning with breakfast at Johnny and Gladys’ house and Mass in Arabic at the Church in Bethlehem.
