Did you know…
…that the synagogue mentioned in today’s Gospel, located in the town of Capernaum in Israel, has been discovered? The original synagogue, which Jesus taught and healed in, no longer is standing, although its foundations still exist. Another, larger, synagogue had been built on top of that foundation, and it also has deteriorated. It is a very interesting place to visit, and knowing that as you touch the foundation walls, you can imagine that Jesus himself may have touched that wall, or even leaned against it at some time!

events on your 2018 calendar! The children and at
