It?s the morning of Sept. 11, 2011, and I am typing from Amman, Jordan, where I am on a press tour with seven other religious journalists.

It?s my second full day here, and I am thoroughly enjoying this beautiful country, which is filled with so much history.

I know it?s the commemoration of 9/11, and I?m intrigued to see what the day will hold. Will people here recall the events of 2001? If so, how and in what spirit?

The joy of being here at this time is the privilege of experiencing ancient, Biblical sites while contemplating where we are today as Christians.

Yesterday we visited Umm Quais in the north of the country. At the ruins of Gedara, we could look out into the Golan Heights and the Sea of Galilee. It was hazy, but the sea was plain to see.

I stood there looking at the place where Jesus walked on water. Awesome.

If such a miracle could be performed by Christ thousands of years ago, there?s really no end to the miracles he can accomplish for us and through us today.

Have a blessed day! Wireless willing, I?ll send more updates as the trip goes on.
