Come to Bethlehem and See

In the words of that renowned theologian Barry Manilow, "Looks like we made it!" There are 23 of us on the trip from all over the States, Presbyterians all. After meeting up in JFK, we breezed through security in Tel Aviv. An uneventful drive to Bethlehem (although the main gate is closed for repairs, so we detoured through Beit Jala), settling in to the hotel, and then catching up on sleepitude. Heck of an agenda. Tomorrow, touring starts. Did I mention we're in Bethlehem?!?!
