PASTOR’S BLOG
Sailing back from the island of Patmos, it was an awesome experience to enter the cave and stand on the very spot on in which John the Revelator had a vision of the resurrected Jesus walking between the candle stand. It was in this cave that John the beloved slept and spent 18 months of his life at which time he wrote the book of Revelation that is so dear to us as a people. Towards the end of his life, he moved to Ephesus where he was buried and we visited the place yesterday. John was highly respected in the early church and the ruins of the city of Ephesus, unlike my earlier imaginations, reveals that this was a very huge, highly developed prosperous city and it looks like the people lived in luxury. The public arena could hold about 45,000 people and even to this day the acoustic is awesome. One of the ladies in the group sang that beautiful song “How Great Thou Art” and the person on the last seat way up on the top of the arena could hear clearly.
 
Shalom, Shalom!
