Romans and the Renaissance
12 Day Tour of Italy
Friends of the Johnson & Beth Ellis
September 23 - October 4, 2019, with optional three nights along the Amalfi Coast, October 4 - 7
Beth and I invite you to join us on a pilgrimage to Italy! Many of us have traveled together before to exotic lands. Let’s add Italy to our experiences.
Italy is a land of culture and history, beauty and culinary delight. We will tour the Italian countryside in Tuscany and Umbria, and visit the grandeur of Rome. As we have on each of our journeys, we will dig into the Word of God.
There is nothing like walking where the Word was written. The focus of this trip will be Paul’s Letter to the Romans. We will gain fresh insight into the early church and the modern church too! Paul’s Letter to the Church at Rome is a powerful theological treatise that speaks volumes to us today and Rome is a magnificent city combining ancient and new. As we travel we will explore the final earthly days of the Apostles Peter and Paul as they faced martyrdom.
We will also gain insight into western civilization and culture. We will share warm fellowship over genuine Italian cooking and the delights of Tuscan cuisine and countryside. We will share the marvel of some of the world’s greatest artists like Michelangelo and Raphael, and architectural monuments in Florence, Pisa, Siena and Rome.
In addition, we have the opportunity to be led in our touring by our dear friends, David and Elizabeth Sparks. Many have traveled with David and Elizabeth before and know how gracious and warm they are personally, and you know that every detail of the trip is first class and lovingly provided.
Won’t you join David and Elizabeth, Beth and me on this lifetime experience? We hope you do!
Grace and Peace to you,
Johnson & Beth Ellis
