Galilee

Today, we began our exploration of Galilee at the Mount of the Beatitudes, where a lovely small church is set in a garden on the top of a hill. Coming down to the shore of the Sea of Galilee,  we celebrated the Eucharist at an outdoor chapel on the shore. What a beautiful spring day, with a light haze over the water. The excavations at Magdala were fascinating, along with the new church that has incorporated some of the newly uncovered ancient town marketplace. The church is dedicated to the ministry of women, and ironically we female Anglican priests were not permitted to celebrate in it. Here are photos of these places
