Welcome to the travel blog for an upcoming trip from Minnesota to the Holy Land.  In early January 2014, several dozen hardy souls from west central Minnesota will be spending 11 days traveling from Minneapolis to Palestine and Jerusalem via Jordan.  My name is Bryant Kaden, pastor of Trinity and West Lake Johanna Lutheran Parish in rural Brooten, MN.  I, along with Pastor Art Wiese of United Lutheran Church in Lake Lillian, MN will be leading this trip where we will explore various Biblical sites from the life of Jesus as well as other cultural sites along the way.  I hope to be able to update this blog daily during our trip with photographs as well as reflections on our experiences.  This should be a wonderful way to share this trip with our friends and family as well as anyone else interested in tagging along from afar.  God's blessings to you this Advent and Christmas season.

Peace in Christ,

Pastor Bryant
