Thoughts on a Long Walk

This evening I took a long walk.

As I started my walk I pulled up my Bible app and I was at Mark chapter 4. I needed to listen to Luke chapters 1-2 to help prepare for my sermon tomorrow. I couldn’t just skip ahead, I had to listen through Mark to get there. So, I had a much needed long walk of about 7-8 miles.

Church of the Nativity - Bethlehem - Birthplace of Jesus - Christmas EveWhile listening I thought of a trip that I took to Israel where I visited Bethlehem. There are a few more  pictures of Bethlehem in my post O Little Town.

Manger at Megiddo, King Ahab, StablesI also thought about a post I wrote titled Away in a Manger. Do you know what a manger would have looked like at the time of Christ?

Shepherd, Turkey, Hattusha, Hittite CapitalI also thought about shepherds watching their flocks in the fields.

Peace on Earth - 1957 - Scrapbook - A Saviour has been born to you - Good Will to MenI also thought about Peace on Earth which is the title of my sermon tomorrow. The lesson will actually cover most of the events from Luke 1-2 and also the visit of the wise men from Matthew 2.

Three Wise Men - The Three Magi - Melchior, Gaspar and Balthazar - Wise Men - OrientHere is an interesting question for you that I looked at in a previous post. Does the bible say that there were Three Wise Men?

Holy Monastery of Saint John the Baptist of Jerusalem, Little visited sites in JerusalemMy presentation tomorrow will also include some of my memories of A Thursday Afternoon in Jerusalem.

Now back to work on my sermon.
