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.
Increased my faith
It was a three day experience with Jesus Christ that increased my faith in Christ and fellow Christians.
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!
A sacred moment where you meet God
"There are sacred moments in our lives when we meet God at the mountain top. Pilgrimage is one such moment, and it prepares us for our work in the valley below."
(MPP having been a guest on a Walk to Emmaus Weekend)
You will experience God's love for you, personally
God's love is poured out in so many ways all throughout the weekend. You will experience God's love for you, personally, and learn how you fit in to God's larger purposes and plan as well as how you can participate in God's mission here on earth.
And we had fun...
It's like a retreat, but it is not a retreat. It was a short course in Chrisitanity. And we had fun!
Like an immunization for my spirit, helping to protect me ...
For me the pilgrimage was like a shot in the arm. Like an immunization for my spirit, helping to protect me from the forces of evil all around me.
