Baptistery Journey to Italy

Well, folks, as you can obviously tell, the Baptistery Journey to Italy, scheduled for November is ON! Take some time to view the video above to learn more.

Here is the cover of the brochure for the journey from our tour company, Peter's Way:

The site has a more detailed page about the journey.

For those of you who follow this blog on a regular basis, you know that my interest in baptism and the cultivation of a baptismal spirituality has been a passion of mine for a few decades now. And in April and May, I was able to visit the baptisteries and see the fonts that you can see in November, 2014.

I blogged during that entire trip. Here you can read about and see some videos I took in Ravenna.

And if you are interested in the baptisteries at Siena and Pisa, look here.

Verona and Parma can be found here.

This is more than just a pilgrimage to Italy. My hope is that it will be a "pilgrimage within," during which we will all deepen our own understanding and appreciation for our baptism: that day when everything changed; that day that meant that, in Christ, nothing would ever be the same again.

I will write periodically about the Baptistery Journey to Italy in the coming months. I believe so strongly that a journey like this can really help change peoples' lives. If you or anyone you know might be interested in coming along, please check out, or have them check out Peter's Way Tours.

Gotta sing. Gotta pray.
