May 9 – Sea of Galilee sunrise, Capernaum, Mt. of Beatitudes, Bethsaida (Israel)


This morning we awoke early to catch the sunrise on the Sea of Galilee. Our Bible talk focused on the morning meal that Jesus shared with his disciples following his resurrection and their obedience to his command, “Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find.”



Our Bible talk explored the healings performed in Capernaum, including the account of the paralytic, inspiration from which Mary Baker Eddy was raised off her death bed.
