Becoming a Pilgrim in Today’s World
It’s common to be a traveler in today’s shrinking world. Hop on a plane and land in Ireland. Hop off a cruise ship and disembark in South America. Even pack a car and end up on a coast or Canada! Being a traveler, as wonderful as that may be, is not the same as being a pilgrim.
Pilgrims don’t travel; pilgrims “journey.” Pilgrims take journeys to holy places to hear God’s whisperings more clearly and to see more vividly a path through the everyday. Pilgrims who have “journeyed” to holy places rarely return the same.
We hope you choose to become a pilgrim in today’s busy world. It will make a difference in your life!
