The Jordon River
My image of The Jordan River is this big beautiful body of water that the sun somehow always shines on. I envision John The Baptist standing in the middle waiting to Baptize anyone who enters.
In reality the area that we are allowed to visit is no more then a small stream of muddy water.
Across the area is Jordan, the area is protected by armed guards to keep anyone from crossing into their country without permission.
Not what I expected but the idea of standing in the same river that Jesus was Baptized is pretty amazing.
It was a short visit where we renewed our Baptismal Vows before getting back on the bus to Jerusalem.
