Today we had an introductory class on Islam. No converts but found it to be very interesting. Tomorrow we will have the second class. It should be interesting because we can ask all kind of questions, religious or political. After the class a few of us went on the Way of the Cross. I led our group. Going there on the bus, we were diverted around the city. The Israeli Police and Military were puttting up road blocks in one the Arab parts of town. It took us a lot longer to get there because of the road closings. I guess there was to be some sort of demostration. Most probably for the press, since it was all staged. The Way of the Cross was almost empty. Had our prayers and was able to make all of the 15 Stations. The 15th Stationis the resurrection. I remembered all of you at his station. It was very nice to walk the Way of Christ almost 2000 years ago. Here are some pictures along the way. The first is Jesus carrying his cross. The second is actual pavement from the First Century. Christ could have possibly used this pavement to carry his cross. Something else. More tomorrow.
