Pilgrimage

Setting out hopefully
With energy
Anticipation
Determination
Walking alongside
First one,then another
Striking up conversations
Listening in to others
Hearing stories
Of other journeys
And other companions on the road
Imagining other lives
Different times
Those who have travelled this way before us 
Those who will follow on
Listening
To the voice of God
That speaks into our lives
In this place and time
Even the stones cry out
their sacred story
clamouring to be heard
imploring us to take heed
And as we place one foot in front of the other
The rhythm of the earth itself
breathes into our bones
communicates with our spirit
inviting us to rest awhile
before journeying on
with a new wisdom
a different insight
Changed not by the place
Or the destination
But by the journey
in the fellowship of God.
