April 7: Call – Pilgrimage of Resurrection
(A Creative Journey through the Easter Season)

Pilgrimage of Ressurection

Word for today: Call

April 7 - CallThis call to embark on a rigorous journey of reclaiming ourselves and our relationship to the divine often comes without our bidding. There are many reasons we might begin an inner pilgrimage. Perhaps we’ve experienced a great loss: a job, our health, a dear friend, a sense of identity, financial security, or a marriage. We know we can’t return to life as usual.
—Christine Valters Paintner, The Soul of a Pilgrim: Eight Practices for the Journey Within

Reflective question:  What call has summoned you to set out upon your journey to transformation? Have your life circumstances forced you on to a journey you would rather not take? Or is this pilgrimage a welcome summons?
