The Land of Many Nations

Jerusalem is built like a city that is closely compacted together. Psalm 122:3

Welcome! Today we are talking about
first impressions.
If you have been to Israel, describe
your first impression.

If you want to go or have a trip planned,
what are your expectations about when you arrive?

If you don't want to go, please share your reason why not.
(please do not include time or money as an issue)

Update April 25, 2010

If you have been to Israel, share one of the most profound experiences you remember. (hard job since so much is there)

Suppose you had the opportunity to visit Israel, please share your hopes and dreams for when you go!

I was so surprised when I arrived to find the green landscape.  I suppose I must have assumed Israel to be all rock and desert.  We arrived in February, a green time of year but I was still overwhelmed with the agriculture and the lack of brown hills.  There was also snow on Mt. Hermon.  I never knew it snowed in Israel at all.

This blog was created as a project in my Master's degree program in Educational Technology. There were so many things I could have done, suddenly I remembered the trip which changed my life in February 2006. I intended this blog for technical practice. Days later, after I had chosen this topic, I learned we are planning another trip to Israel in March 2011. In 2006 we toured Israel from the Lebanon/Syrian border at the Golan Heights to the southern border at the Dead Sea and many interesting places in-between. A fascinating adventure and Spirit filled time. This journey was certainly a huge highlight in my life!
