Serenading #HolyJordan with a uke and a wistful song


The Daily Catch - published on 10/12/16

Jordan is so beautiful, and the first glimpse of Petra is coming soon, but your correspondent has had a few technical difficulties so the images are not quite there, yet. The trip has produced some wonderful brief videos, however, and on one of them you get the see the serene beauty of this land, and its people while some American guy sings in the background.

That video is introduced by the incredible Raed Haddad, who is guiding us through these streets and towns where Jesus walked and taught, and was baptized. Take a look behind him. Once you’ve seen this land, the hills and desert, the olive trees and camels, the healing aloe plants, how you receive scripture is changed and enriched.

N. Connor Eberhart and team are doing a really superb job of creating these quick 50-second videos that give a visual flavor of what we’re seeing. Check them out!

I’ll have more for you tonight. This place is incredible. The food, the people, the history, the worship – all of it!
