What is a spiritual pilgrimage and why does it matter? For thousands of years, Christians have embarked on journeys to sacred sites throughout the world, such as retracing the steps of Jesus in the Holy Land or walking the Camino de Santiago (Way of Saint James) in northern Spain. But we don’t have to walk hundreds of miles to experience a spiritual pilgrimage. What has the spiritual practice of pilgrimage looked like in your life? What new journey do you feel called to embark upon?
