Pilgrimage Through Thin Places

Confluence of vision

Convergence of ideals


Conventional agreement

Conditional surrender


Confrontation of ambition

Contravention of intention


Contradiction of privation

Consummation of relations


Confirmation of negations

Conflagration of emotion


Convenience of abundance

Contrivance of excuses


Conveyance of purpose

Concurrence of action


Conviction of God’s grace

Confection of God’s peace

Beautiful! Thank you for your gift of words. Someone asked me recently "How is a pilgrimage different from a journey". I answered - a journey is a trip you take to get to a specific destination for a specific purpose ... a pilgrimage is a trip you take in the context of a story.. you hear the story, you walk towards it, you become a part of the story.

Mindie, thank you for your kind words.

I like your answer about journey and pilgrimage. Not only does one become part of the story one walks towards in a pilgrimage, but the story of the places the pilgrim encounters along the way become a part of the pilgrim. It is the inevitability of those exchanges that I find mystical and magical. They occur without our active agency.
