Next Year in Jerusalem
“Next Year in Jerusalem” is a Jewish phrase with a long and deep history. You can read about it here, but the idea is self-evident. It represents hope; the unfulfilled hope of the Jews and their desire to rebuild the Temple and make the Davidic kingdom a modern-day reality. But it has become a statement that I say to many of my friends in Israel when I leave every year. “Next year in Jerusalem.” They smile and say it back. And both hope that it is going to be true.
And it will be! We are heading back to the Holy Land in 2018 for an amazing time of touring, engaging the land, and blessing. Some call it “A Holy Land Tour” or a “Biblical Israel Tour“, or an “Experience of the Fifth Gospel.” But whatever you will call it, it is probably on your bucket list. And if you are an ordained leader, I know it absolutely has been on your list for a long, long time.
Twenty-four years ago such a journey changed my life in ways I could never have imagined. And I have taken dozens of ministers and spouses who serve as pastors, preachers, seminary professors, theological students, missionaries, or ordained leaders in active service to the church. I have seen them ‘in country,’ so to speak. It is unforgettable. And they all express the same thing; this is THE most renewing experience imaginable!
And I have led hundreds and hundreds of people there and back again. And they usually say the same thing on the plane ride home. They always have only one regret: that they did not go earlier!
