Larry visits Mars Hill

Yesterday we went into Athens to see the sites. We made it to Mar's Hill. I will tell you about a really cool ministry connect we made there in my next post.

The book of Acts comes alive here as you walk around the marketplace, the temple sites, Mar's Hill.

I am standing next to his speech as recorded in Acts 17. I giving you the English version in case you cannot zoom in and read it in Greek.

22Paul then stood up in the meeting of the Areopagus and said: "Men of Athens! I see that in every way you are very religious. 23For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: TO AN UNKNOWN GOD. Now what you worship as something unknown I am going to proclaim to you.

I must say when you come to Athens you must try the "Frappe". I doubt the Apostle Paul was able to experience this aspect of Athenian life but the"iced coffee drink" is something to remember.

More Soon.
