Journeys of Paul pilgrimage with Bishop Carter slated for November 2015


An Invitation from Bishop Carter

I would like to extend an invitation to you to join me, Dr. Waite Willis, your clergy colleagues and many of our Florida Conference church members on a Journeys of Paul pilgrimage planned for November 2015.

We will sail the Mediterranean following in the footsteps of the Apostle Paul through Greece, Turkey and Italy for 13 days in November.  I am excited to have Waite, the Edward J. Pendergrass Professor of Religion at Florida Southern College, join us as our guest speaker.

For thirteen days in November, we will travel, study, worship and fellowship aboard the Rhapsody of the Seas. Our itinerary will include Rome and Crete; Athens, Corinth and Rhodes, Greece; and Ephesus and Miletus in Turkey. We will also stop in Valletta, Malta, where, according to the book of Acts, Paul was shipwrecked.

Our 13-day fellowship with each other will be November 7 through 19, 2015.  For a detailed description of our itinerary and registration, please visit our website www.flumc.org and click on the quick link, “Bishop’s Journeys of Paul Pilgrimage.”

I look forward to sharing the experience of travel, study, worship and fellowship with you on this wonderful, life-transforming pilgrimage this November!

The Peace of the Lord,

Bishop Kenneth H. Carter, Jr.
