A Pleasant Surprise and Familiar Places

We have a plan. Walk to the Damascus Gate and beat the crowds. CHECK


Shop and drink some coffee. CHECK


Visit a Museum. CHECK


Have Lunch. CHECK

And about that Surprise.

I cannot recommend visiting the Tower of David Museum MORE!

Hidden in this gem of a place …

Remnants of the Wall that Nehemiah rebuilt.


A Stone from the Hulda Gate – an entrance to Temple of Jesus’ Time.


Oh and Spectacular views from the top of Herod’s Defense Tower – yes that Herod!


All in all a great day inside the Old City.

Can’t wait till the day comes for another visit.

Now to pack and head for home.



I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
