The Garden Tomb
We were able to sit in a beautiful setting and worship together just a little distance from the tomb. There was so much singing going on all around us. We sang. Allen preached. Charlie spoke and sang "In the Garden." We prayed. We had communion. And I have our tiny olive wood goblets on a shelf in my kitchen as a keepsake from this very memorable experience. It was an amazing day I will never forget. I am so thankful to have shared this experience with John and some of my church family.
I haven't shared pictures of the alternate location yet. When I do, I think you will understand why I so want to believe that The Garden Tomb is the actual location of Christ's resurrection. I felt the power of His resurrection while visiting this site and it felt so much more like the right place to me. I didn't feel that way at the other site. The other site is very different, both in the way it looks and the way it feels. But ultimately, it really doesn't matter where His resurrection took place. All that matters is that we know our Redeemer lives, and that He will one day return for us, His followers.
