Pilgrims

“In religion and spirituality, a pilgrimage is a long journey or search of great moral significance. Sometimes, it is a journey to a shrine of importance to a person’s beliefs and faith. Members of many major religions participate in pilgrimages. A person who makes such a journey is called a pilgrim.” From Wikipedia.

After forty years of serving other people, we will soon be going on Sabbatical. Another word we are thinking of to describe our journey is Pilgrimage.

There are four “Parts” to it.

The first two parts are self-explanatory, with the first spent in Rest and Recovery and the second part in Spiritual Renewal. The third part will be Refocusing where we will begin to take a look at our future, and at our age, how we can fulfill our desire to “finish well”.

The fourth and final phase of our Sabbatical is Re-entry, and at this point we don’t know what that will look like. It will depend entirely on the first three.

We are very excited about this “journey”, and having uninterrupted time to spend in pilgrimage, exploring and expanding our relationship with God and certainly our relationship with each other, because at this stage in our lives, they are now intertwined.

We will be changed. Or perhaps, transformed.
