Among the sights, we shall be visiting the Mount of the Beatitudes, Mount Tabor, the scene of the Transfiguration, the Sea of Galilee, Capernaum and Tabgha where the Miracle of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fishes took place. This Pilgrimage will be a journey to the very source of Christianity, the place where “the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us”. For many, it will be a once in a lifetime experience which we will share as one family in Christ. Inspired by the True Life in God Messages, we welcome the opportunity to live and worship in unity with all Christians, as well as other faiths irrespective of denomination, nationality or “man-made” divisions. Ecumenical bonding is the essence of the True Life In God pilgrimages as we pray in unity to our one Lord. Knowing TLIG pilgrimages to be memorable and uplifting events for both clergy and laity, we look forward to welcoming you on the 2013 pilgrimage. Our Program will commence in Jerusalem, with pilgrims arriving on SUNDAY, August 25th, and will end in Nazareth. Pilgrims will depart for their respective countries on Monday, September 2nd. Arrivals and departures will be via the airport of Tel Aviv.
