Israel - Day 3 - Caesarea (and a Song for the Sabbath!)

I hope you are having a beautiful, restful Sabbath day.  I am sure this will be a Sunday unlike any other Kevin and I have ever experienced.  Although the Jewish people in Israel consider Saturday the Sabbath.  Today we will be visiting Caesarea, and having morning worship by the sea at a Coliseum.  Highlights of today will include going to Mount Carmel and visiting the "Mukhraka," the site where the prophet Elijah debated the 450 prophets of Baal.  We will view Mount Tabor, the site of the 'transfiguration,' and we will visit Nazareth, including the synagogue where Jesus learned to read the Bible.  We will also pass Cana, the village where Jesus performed his first miracle at the wedding.
