Since I already shared a taste of Greece for Foodie Friday, today I thought I would share the more spiritual side of our trip.
While we were staying in Athens we took a tour bus from our hotel to Corinth. This spot is where they would gather to hear politicians and speakers of news of the day. Paul first shared the good news of the gospels here and converted many to Christianity.
More ruins of Corinth.
The Church dedicated to St. Paul.
This beautiful mosiac was outside of one of the Greek Orthodox churches in Athens.
All the islands had small chapels - some were built for the fishermen to pray and give thanks each day -- this one was in Mykonos.
This picture is from the ruins of Ephesus, Turkey. Also where Paul preached and set up a church.
More pictures of the ruins.
Above the entry of the Holy Grotto of the Apocalypse where John wrote Revelations.
Some of the shields within a cross on the Street of the Knights in Rhodes.
Ruins of an early Church in Rhodes.
It was very inspiring to walk the paths of Paul and to see where the earliest Churches were formed I'll be posting more pictures of our trip soon.
