It seems that no matter how much one prepares ahead, as it gets closer to an event preparatory activities intensify. That's how it feels now that youTheology is just under three weeks away from our annual pilgrimage to the East Coast.
It's a Pan-Methodist pilgrimage during which we trace our early Methodist roots and learn more about social justice issues and advocacy. It's a time of fun, new experiences, deepened relationships with God, increased community, challenge and surprises. But in the present, it's preparation time. It's a good time. It's a God time.
Between now and the pilgrimage we pray for God's help as we seek to ensure all the pieces are tied together. We also pray for God's movement so that we will grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as we travel. Preparing and waiting; that's where we are now. It's good. God is good.
If you want a greater sense of the journey, you can trace our steps in 2010 right here.
