Member Discussions:

Barbara Battle shared her experiences on two trips to Israel.  As an active Catholic, Barbara described how meaningful it was to her to visit places described in the Bible.  Specifically,  to visit the place where Jesus was born in Bethlehem was a very memorable experience for Barbara.  Also when she visited the place where Jesus was crucified, Ms. Barbara also described how meaningful seeing this place was for her.
