Dear Friends,

We invite you to join us in traveling to Italy!   We will be touring the magnificent Tuscan countryside with its rolling hills and spectacular art and architecture.  We’ll visit lovely Assisi in the region of Umbria, and finally we’ll stroll through the streets of Rome to visit the ancient sites of the Roman Empire.

I’ll be commenting along the way on the biblical and spiritual aspects of Italy’s history have on our faith today.  Elizabeth will be selecting our menus and handling all the details so that our trip runs smoothly all along the way.  You can be assured every facet of our tour will be superb.

On this trip we will explore two facets of Italy’s monumental history:  The Renaissance and Paul’s letter to the Romans.  Our daily lessons will focus on Romans using Medieval and Renaissance art as the visual aids. 

Of course we will also enjoy the Italy of today with its cuisine and natural beauty.  We will stay for six nights in the hill town of San Gimignano and we will use it as our base to visit Florence, Siena, and Pisa. After spending one night in Umbria we will spend our final days in Rome.  All along the way we will enjoy warm fellowship as we share together in this journey.

We’re excited about sharing this wonderful adventure with you!  Please join us in the celebratory tour. Elizabeth and I can hardly wait to travel with the wonderful folks of Redemption church once again!

Grace and Peace,

David Sparks
