THE SELAH STORY

The concept of 'Selah' was birthed Lisa Tarzia's personal experience.  As the Executive Director of  Mission Travel, Lisa has always been passionate about travel that transforms.  Through her own journey, 'selah-moments' she experienced were life changing.  This drew her to a place where she wanted to provide opportunities for Christians to have these moments.

"Escaping from the busyness of life and making an intentional choice to stop and go deeper in faith is what I want to create," says Lisa.

Selah provides these opportunities through retreats, workshops and travel.  Custom made for the Australian Christian, the heart behind Selah is for people to grow and be transformed.  

The power of pausing and reflecting is incredible. As A.W. Tozer writes 'More spiritual progress can be made in one short moment of speechless silence in the awesome presence of God than in years of mere study.'

Oberammergau Passion Play 2020

Oberammergau is a little town in Germany with an amazing story.  Many years ago, in 1632, Oberammergau was on the cusp the Black Plague.  The people of Oberammergau made a vow to God that if he spared their town from the inevitable plague, they would regularly perform the Passion Play as a sign of repentance.  After this pledge, incredibly, in fact miraculously, no one died. So in 1634, the first Passion Play was staged in the town.   Since 1680 the play has performed on the first year of each decade.  Other than during WWII and in 1770, the Oberammergau Passion Play has performed uninterrupted every decade The Oberammergau Passion Play transforms the whole village.  In the last Passion Play in 2010, there were 2,000 adults and children involved.  The stage, the costuming, the whole amphitheatre is transformed. One fascinating part of the story is that only locals who have lived in the village for at…
