To me, watching the sunrise—as well as the sunset—is a pilgrimage because I connect with that quiet, serene, calm place inside that accepts the moment for what it is. It’s that place within each of us that can feel expansive awe and wonder in the midst of a busy day or a difficult situation. It’s that part of us that knows we are bigger and more than who we think we are.
Perhaps you’d like to know about a few recent pilgrimages I’ve made. Recently, I visited a beloved friend and we hiked in a park, enjoying the splendor of Mother Nature.
We also visited a historic location and toured a church at the site. The stained glass was exquisite and the church was infused with benevolence and grace from nearly two centuries of peoples prayers and worship.
