    I'd have to google these things myself NGL, no idea what women and men should be wearing in some of these different places :lol:
    We need to get you a thawb! I think you can wear normal clothes in a mosque but women need to cover up and I also need to wear tights and a long dress/skirt If I'm going to a synagogue.The long white dress Arab men wear. Foo.mp3 is getting one too inshallah

    I too had wanted to go for quite a while, I just never thought it would be able to happen. Thank goodness for religious rich uncle It didn't provide the miracle he was hoping for, which was disappointing for us all, but it is certainly a once-in-a-lifetime experience and I'd thoroughly recommend it :yes:
    I was going to ask,did you have to go through any checkpoints whilst in the holy land? Was there any violence around in the surrounding area.

    We did have to but that was mainly because we all landed in Jordan and then took a coach to the Israeli-Jordanian border. I think our coach had to pass a checkpoint to go into Bethlehem and our Israeli guide was not allowed into Bethlehem but he knew in advance that that would happen and they had planned in advance for that, so it was fine. It just meant we had a different tour guide for Bethlehem :yes:

    No.

    I've been a few times, but only to volunteer etc. I like the architecture and the community feel, though.

    Cute. How do you feel about Western governments who align themselves to "Christian values" but unleash such perils on the world btw? I think that's another reason people are not going Church or aligning themselves to those values.
    David Cameron and Tony Blair both profess to be Christians. Cameron practices bestiality and narcolepsy. Blair is a war criminal. What does this tell us about Christianity ? Nothing good I suspect !

    Exactly my point. Yet both align themselves to "Christian Values"

    No, it tells us about them, not Christianity as a whole. And last time I checked, no one is perfect. Blaming a religion because of some selected few that don't abide by their religion's principles is distasteful. There are faithful abiding Christians in the world, people just always seem to pick the negativity to negate Christianity, but it shouldn't be like that. Everyone is responsible for their own actions irrespective of being Christians.

    I go to bible study sometimes, at my Church. On Sundays, we do scripture reading of bible passages and discussions with the congregation and pastor, and bible quiz some Sundays, which I absolutely love. :yes:.

    Thanks! Yes, try to attend Church. Gatherings with friends to explore more about God and read the bible is great too
