Our Sunday morning class during Lent is the book Are We There yet? Pilgrimage in the Season of Lent. Join us at 9:15 a.m. each Sunday on Zoom using the “Join us” button on the home page or this link.
Each week’s chapter in this book is written by a different author or two, describing the penitential and purgative process of walking to/around/through some of the most beloved pilgrimage sites in the Christian tradition or of making an internal pilgrimage, a journey through difficult terrain of the soul.
The book is available new from the publisher, Forward Movement, for $7 plus shipping and as a PDF download for printing or viewing at bodysuitmx.blogspot.com.
