Womb 2 Tomb; Bethlehem 2 Jerusalem; Biking on Christmas thru the Holy Land

by Steve Ray on December 26, 2015

I am back in Israel now! Greetings from the Land! I posted this blog a year ago — but I am posting it again so you can see Bethlehem from a unique perspective, from my bike. I think you will enjoy this fun and educational adventure riding through Bethlehem and Jerusalem today.

Steve with son-in-law Wesley Sorrill

We are in Israel with my daughter Charlotte, her husband Wesley and my wife Janet. We are picking up our bus full of people tomorrow at the Tel Aviv airport. We are looking forward to a wonderful pilgrimage through the land of Our Lord.

We arrived a day before our group so my son-in-law and I decided to take an adventure from Jerusalem to Bethlehem and back. Yesterday was Christmas and here in the Land it will be Christmas until January 6.

Entering Church of Nativity in Bethlehem

So we started our run and bike ride from the birthplace of Christ to the place where he was crucified, buried and rose again. We had a great time together getting good exercise as we explored the land of the Bible.

We all hope you enjoy this video and it again reminds you of the truth of the Catholic Faith. It is rooted in history and is true with a capital T.

Merry Christmas from Bethlehem!

Merry Christmas! This brought back memories of our fantastic pilgrimage to the Holy Land with Steve Ray’s group in 2012. Steve should get one of those Go Pro wearable cameras!
