a time of reflection and renewal

"Pilgrimage  weekend was a time for reflection and renewal of my spiritual life.  It was a time to focus in my life and see how God has been by my side through the years.  His love and grace were so evident."

There is now more expectancy...

It is a time to let the Scriptures take you in unexpected ways.  There is now more expectancy in my Christian life.

It started me...

It started me keeping a "gratitude journal" so that I am focused on all God's blessings in my life---rather than on problems.

Renewed my desire....

It renewed my desire to do Christian service.

I didn't realize I was part of God's plan

"I have been a Christian since I was eleven. But until I attended a Pilgrimage weekend, I didn't realize I was part of God's plan - me personally."

But then an amazing thing happens...

To me it was a wonderful opportunity to serve.  You completely become the hands, feet, and heart of Christ.  You give and serve freely - expecting nothing in return.  But then an amazing thing happens - through this experience it is YOU who are blessed!  OUR GOD IS AN AWESOME GOD!

I needed...

"I needed to be completely emptied to get filled up again."

One of the best decisions I have ever made

I was a little hesitant, to say the least, about my first Pilgrimage experience. I finally agreed to go, and it was one of the best decisions I have ever made. What I found through the Pilgrimage was a communal encounter with Christ. Just what I was yearning for. The weekend was intentional; every part planned with a purpose, which enriched the experience and added meaning to my life. I have attended several Pilgrimages since, and I encounter Christ through everyone each time. That's why I keep coming back!
