Lovely deep little vid from Stu G treading Holy Land

Advent Day 18
I’ve got hours of video and a book full of notes from my trip to the Holy Land in June. One of the highlights for me was havingAndy Hutch (photographer, videographer, director) who’s one of my best friends in the world, there on the trip filming for Greenbelt.
I got to go to the Mount Of The Beatitudes twice in two weeks and this video is from the first time, when along with friends from the Greenbelt Festival and The Amos trust, we walked down the side of the hill all the way down to Capernaum on the banks of the Galilee. 
I got to go back the week after with my friends from The Telos group
As you can tell from the conversation, we are friends… and a bit silly, and Hutch is full of great one liners - “I’m guessing Jesus liked a banana” -  but also we were just blown away by being there and grappling with our thoughts and experiences and trying to put some language around what we were experiencing.
As you will see in 2014 The Beatitudes are playing a huge part in my life right now, and I can’t wait to share all that with you…I also can’t wait to get back to the Galilee.
