Have you ever wanted to walk where Jesus walked, to visit the land sacred to three great faiths, the cradle of Christianity? Or visit the places where Christianity was born, in the footsteps of St. Paul? Following a well-received trip to the Holy Land in June 2015 with a group of 38, Dr. David Moseley is planning two trips for next summer: another trip to the Holy Land (Israel, Palestine and Jordan); and a trip to Greece and Turkey.
The itinerary for the holy land trip includes Galilee, Nazareth, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, the Dead Sea, Amman and Petra. In Greece and Turkey, we plan to visit Istanbul, Troy, Ephesus, Athens, Corinth, and Delphi, as well as a short cruise through the Greek islands.
Dr. Moseley teaches religious studies at The Bishop’s School in La Jolla, was an adjunct faculty member in the department of theology at University of San Diego for 17 years, is a founding faculty member of the diocesan School for Ministry, and theologian-in-residence at St. Paul’s Cathedral. He has taught many adult education classes in parishes throughout the San Diego diocese. As well as leading the trips and working alongside local guides, David will also teach a series of classes in the spring of 2016 for trip participants about the history, geography and culture of the places we’ll be visiting, as well as exploring the Biblical narratives of the gospels and Pauline Christianity.
The trips will be organized in partnership with George’s International Tours, a family-owned international tour operator which has handled thousands of successful trips to the holy land and throughout the world since their founding in 1931, and is one of the leaders in the Christian group travel market. Estimated cost for the two-week itinerary (including flights, four-star accommodations, breakfast and dinner, and local transport), plus pre-departure classes, is approximately $4,500-$5,000 per person.

Most everyone in the San Diego area knows the Marine Corps motto: “Semper Fi,” always faithful. Some know the Coast Guard motto: “Semper Paratus,” always prepared. From my experience as a deacon, I suggest that the motto for the diaconate should be: “Semper Gumbi,” always flexible. What I thought I would do as a deacon […]
Though the subtitle is tongue in cheek, one of the concepts we learn in Cursillo to help maintain our spiritual life in Christ is summed up in those three words: Piety, Study, and Action. The simple activity of reading the Bible daily to another person has strengthened me in those three disciplines. It has impacted […]
