Pilgrimage and Art

As someone who lived and ministered at a retreat house and led pilgrimages to the Holy Land, I know that journeys can change our life circumstances and us. Men and women journeyed from near and far to the retreat house; and I have journeyed to destinations near and far with common folks like myself to encounter God in a unique way and be changed by it.

As a matter of fact, pilgrimage has been one of the most important means by which God has performed His work of salvation in the lives of ALL of us. Yes, we are ALL, aware or unaware, recipients of the saving benefits of pilgrimage. Some pilgrimages take us half way around the world and some into the next room. Here is a wonderful reflection by Lisa Deam, that focuses on art as one of the means by which we can pursue this transformative discipline.
