Bring the power of Companions in Christ to senior-high youth and college freshmen! Embark on a journey into a deeper understanding of the Christian life through a pattern of scripture, daily exercises, and short readings.
The Way of Pilgrimage is a 5-volume experiential study designed for older youth and college freshmen; it’s written by young adults active in youth ministry. Its focus is to guide our deliberate progress as Christians living out our day-to-day lives (aka spiritual formation). Consider the spiritual journey as a continuous road trip; it’s not about where we travel but how we travel. We’re on a pilgrimage to mark a journey on the inside, to find it not so easy to separate life from worship.
In volume 1, Choosing Pilgrimage, participants will realize that pilgrimage is a journey to the heart of God. They hear the call to be on pilgrimage in Jesus’ baptism, in the many faces of God’s grace in scripture, and in stories of Christians through the ages.
“Whoever you are and wherever you are, I can guarantee that this journey will not leave you unchanged,” write the authors. “The call of God is first a call to know and be known. ... It is about knowing yourself in relation to the One who paints the sunsets and cradles the sparrow, the One who inspired Mother Teresa and Martin Luther King Jr. and Bono. These people heard the second, and no less important, part of the call: to be transformed by the One who calls people to serve a hurting world — to find a worthwhile purpose beyond yourself.”
A Leader’s Guide, covering all 5 volumes in “The Way of Pilgrimage” series, is also available.
