For one Bowling Green couple, their recent 10-day visit to the Holy Land was a life-changing experience.
Rick and Jackie Metz journeyed to the birthplace of Christianity on the trip with a focus on the biblical "Promised Land."
They heard of the trip through their church, Dayspring, on North Dixie Highway.
"It was on our bucket list," Jackie Metz said. "It is the most exciting place to visit on Earth."
She justified her characterization by listing numerous reasons, supplemented by her husband's thoughts, for her belief including that it was the area which featured "the birthplace of God (Jesus); beginning of civilization; historic sites; the multi-cultural aspects; and the dichotomy of having very modern touring capabilities while still preserving the sites to be much as they would have appeared to Jesus and his disciples.
"I've been to Europe before and seen antiquity. But I never expected the extent of antiquity I saw there. This was much older and it was exhilarating and awesome to know there were still things available to see from Christ's time."
Her husband agreed, "Many areas are still as they were - like the Sea of Galilee. It's all natural and there are still things much as it was when Jesus walked the Earth."

Last week Pope Francis concluded the first year of his papacy, and the Jesuits, the religious order of priests and brothers who count Pope Francis as one of their own, have reason to celebrate. In the U.S., the Jesuits are reporting a surge in vocation inquiries since his election.
Men interested in exploring the possibility of joining the Jesuits first make contact with the religious order through regional vocation offices, and those offices are all reporting a significant uptick in vocation inquiries, one as  high as 116 percent.
Father Chuck Frederico, S.J., vocations director for the Jesuits of the Maryland, New England and New York Provinces, said his office has been flooded with inquiries. "These men are inspired by the Holy Father. ... They're excited by the example of Pope Francis."
