What Is A Pilgrimage?
A pilgrimage is, quite simply, a trip that is spiritually motivated. Pilgrims travel to sacred sites to follow in the footsteps of their spiritual fore-bearers, to encounter the divine, and to deepen their personal faith. Pilgrims stop to pray, worship, and reflect along the way. Our pilgrimages are Christian in nature with a mind toward the Protestant tradition, though all are welcome.
Rather than promoting any one political perspective, our tours value learning and encourage critical thinking about the religious and political history of a region. We believe it is important for travelers to encounter people from diverse backgrounds and perspectives. Pilgrims will not only see the ancient sites but also meet the living stones, the people of the land, especially those who are working to building a better world.
