In 1980 i went to the Holy land on a pilgrimage its a long time ago now but i will never forget my experience.  Walking the path Jesus had walked and being baptised full emersion in the river jordon along with just three others, walking up the stone steps after the baptism i felt amazing.

This was where the man called Jesus had  himself been baptised by John the baptist and here i was standing in the very place having been baptised just as he was the man they called the son of god.

The man who gave his own blood for us, who was crucified for doing nothing else but give the people guidance on how to live in this crazy world.  It was a good example of the blood thirsty people who set free a murderer called Barrabus and crucified a good man called Jesus.  Some say the bible is just stories but those stories reveil the same sort of people who exist today and the same kind of situations, and the same result.

Matthew. 5.

Verse 11.

Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you and persecute you and say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.


It is a weird world we live in because that person who rarely speaks you see on the street every day maybe more true to you than the one smilling at you, the one close to you.
