We are on a journey through a pandemic, not knowing our destination, but aware we follow in a line of saints of old, who have set off before us in the footsteps of Jesus, walking the way. Like those before us, we may travel with faith and doubt, hope and fear, and, perhaps, have a holy encounter along the way. That we travel
at all will mean that we are changed. Pilgrimage is about taking and risking such
a journey, faith is knowing that we are accompanied by God, hope is in a Kingdom destination, and love may be experienced with companions.
