So far this week, I’ve shared photos from the Egypt and Jordan legs of my trip to the Middle East. The remainder of the trip was in Israel and Palestine, and I’ve got tons of photos and experiences and thoughts. Honestly, I’m still trying to figure out the best way to share those photos. In the meantime . . .
This weekend, I’m participating in an icon writing (painting) retreat with a renown iconographer (Joe Malham). So I decided to share photos I took during our visit to the Church of the Annunciation in Nazareth. Countries from all over the world have gifted the church with Mary icons, and it was amazing to see the different ways that cultures depicted her. After the Mary images, I’ve included some other photos I captured at the church.
