To all Bondings 2.0 readers:
From February 14th to 23rd, this blog’s two main contributors, Francis DeBernardo and Bob Shine, will be in Israel, as part of New Ways Ministry’s LGBT pilgrimage to the Holy Land sites, which includes meeting with contemporary peacemakers and LGBT leaders. New Ways Ministry’s co-founder. Sister Jeannine Gramick, is the leader of the pilgrimage.
While we are excited about the journey, we did want you to know that we may not be as regular in posting to this blog as we have been. The differences in time zones, the rigors of travel, and the access to Wi-Fi may all alter our regular schedule of researching, writing, and posting. Additionally, moderation of comments may also be a bit delayed for the same reasons. So, don’t be alarmed if things are not as regular as they have been.
We will have our computers with us, and it is our intention to try to keep up with our traditional schedule, but we did want to inform you that such may not be the case. If we are able to, we will occasionally post about any interesting parts of our journey there. On some days, we may be in “light mode,” perhaps only posting links to stories, rather than summaries and commentary. We are going to be “playing it by ear,” trying to figure out what we can do, given our limitations. We appreciate your indulgence.
Our regular schedule will return after February 24th.
As we visit the holy places where Jesus and other Biblical figures lived, we will keep you all in prayer.
–Francis DeBernardo and Bob Shine, New Ways Ministry
