Southern plans Alaskan getaway

Communications Staff — November 17, 2010

R. Albert Mohler Jr., president of Southern Seminary, along with his wife Mary, will join friends of Southern Seminary on an Alaskan cruise from July 30 – August 6, 2011.

Through a partnership with Inspiration Cruises and Tours, a Christian travel agency based in California, the cruise has been organized by Southern Seminary to be a vacation, a journey of learning, an adventure in the northwest and an opportunity for authentic Christian fellowship. The seven-day cruise will depart and conclude in Seattle, Wash., and includes stops in Juneau, Sitka and Ketchikan, Alaska, as well as at Hubbard Glacier and Victoria, B.C., Canada.

“I have always wanted to visit Alaska. Mary and I are looking forward to a very special event in the summer of 2011 when we, along with friends of Southern Seminary, will cruise the glacier ridden waters of Alaska and see one of the most amazing and pristine regions of earth,” Mohler wrote.

Trip participants will be sailing with the Holland America cruise line on the MS Westerdam. The floating resort offers trip participants five-star cuisine and service while sailing past the glacial ice, Alaskan wilderness and snow-covered mountains. Each day trip participants will gather to hear messages delivered by President R. Albert Mohler, Daniel S. Dumas and Jason K. Allen.
