DAYTON ROTARY HEARS ABOUT THE HOLY LAND TOUR
Rotarian Dr. Luke Chachere introduced Pastor Guy Williams, of Dayton First Methodist Church who gave an informative program over the tour of the Holy Land. He is organizing a group that will be traveling to the Holy Land next February (2024). The tour will visit major sites, stay in 4-star hotels, enjoy included buffet breakfasts and dinners with knowledgeable guides while traveling in a deluxe motor coach. Williams discussed with the club various places that the group will be traveling and pointed out on a map the various locations they will see. In his presentation, he highlighted Capernaum, which was the base of Jesus’ Galilean ministry, hometown of Peter and other disciples. Capernaum was also the location of biblical teachings, healings, and other miracles. Another interesting location where the group will tour is around the Sea of Tiberius/Galilee, which houses a museum with an ancient Galilee fishing boat that was discovered in 1986 which dates back to the First Century AD. Other highlights of his presentation included: a picture and map of Caesarea Maritima- the imprisonment and trial site of the disciple Paul, the Garden Tomb, the Upper Room Site, the Mount of Olives, Nazareth and the Qumran/Dead Sea Scrolls. Pastor Williams concluded the informative program answering many questions. For more information on the upcoming tour, contact guy@firstmethodistdayton. org.
