Ephesus is amazing!  Everyone I have talked to who has been here told me that. Visiting Ephesus today was even better than I anticipated. Imagine a theater seating 23,000 which still requires no amplification to hear someone speaking on stage when you are in the upper reaches of the theater. The Library of Celsus is the backdrop for our group picture above. We also saw the tomb of St. John today. 

The Biblical sites and connections here seem endless. Turkey truly is the second Holy Land. 

We also witnessed a demonstration of how Turkish rugs are made. Impressive. We are well and looking forward to a few more days of touring before our departure early on Sunday. Grace and peace. 

Pass the Peace!
