A great young videographer named Connor Eberhart accompanied us on the trip. He was tireless and he was everywhere—photographing everything we did, every place we saw. (Did he ever sleep? I’m not so sure…)
Here, in roughly chronological order, are some of the videos he posted on his Vimeo site, which give a great sense of the experience. Most are short, just a minute or so.
Below that, I’ve posted links to all my blog posts on the trip.

Thanks for sharing this journey with me!
Thanks, too, for the many prayers for a safe trip that I know added immeasurably to the graces of this journey.
Know that you were prayed for and remembered every step of the way. Salaam!
UPDATE: Frank Weathers has a great analysis of our trip and why a journey to the Holy Land, the “Fifth Gospel,” isn’t really complete without spending significant time in Jordan. He’s right. Find out why.
