These are Roger's first couple of updates:
At Heathrow about to take off at 1420.
Just landed in Cyprus! Problem at Tel Aviv! Don't know what happens next!
I'm now staying overnight on the shores of Galilee, having travelled from Tel Aviv, Joppa, Mount Gilboa and Beth Shean. We go to the Golan Heights and Caesarea Philippi tomorrow (Thursday).
Just visited synagogue remains in Golan. Rabbis when teaching would have encouraged "tweeting". That's how folk learn by questions and interaction! My Weston vicar is entirely biblical!
