Past Trips include: 
Bonhoeffer Tour at the Holocaust Museum Houston
The Holocaust Museum in Houston is commemorating the 70th anniversary of the death of Pastor Dietrich Bonhoeffer. The tours provide an opportunity for museum visitors to learn the story of his ministry and his message to the church in the context of the events of the Holocaust. He was very outspoken in his opposition to Hitler. Pastor Bonhoeffer was arrested, put in a concentration camp and then put to death for his support of the Jews and opposition to Hitler. 
 
The Painted Churches of Schulenberg Tour 
From the outside, they look like many American country churches built around the turn of the last century — arched Gothic Revival windows, facades clad in white frame siding or in stone, lone steeples rising up into the Texas sky.
Cross the threshold of these particular Texas churches and you’ll encounter not a simple wooden interior but an unexpected profusion of color. Nearly every surface is covered with bright painting: exuberant murals radiate from the apse, elaborate foliage trails the walls, wooden columns and baseboards shine like polished marble in shades of green and gray. These are the Painted Churches of Texas. There are 20 painted churches throughout Texas. We will be seeing four of them near Schulenberg.
