Footsteps Fridays: Index to blog posts reflecting on the “Footsteps of Jesus” pilgrimage to the Holy Land

Footsteps FridaysWelcome to the Index of blog posts about the “Footsteps of Jesus” pilgrimage I took in the Spring of 2017.  I’m writing this series as a way of processing the experience and sharing my photos and reflections with our church, my friends, and those interested in pilgrimage and the Christian faith.  Every Friday, I’ll put up a new post.  They are listed here in chronological order.  Enjoy!

Episode 1:  Every Day Is A Pilgrimage, Every Step An Adventure  In which I introduce the blog series, the concept of pilgrimage, and the idea of kairos time. 

Episode 2: It Is Enough   In which I tackle the question “what was the best part” and reflect on contentment.

Episode 3: Power Is Seductive, But It Never Satisfies   In which I reflect on Herod the Great, his palace at Herodium, and the nature of power.

Episode 4:  Pondering The Path Of Solitude  In which I visit Qumran and consider the Essene community.

Episode 5:  Shadows of Spock in Jerusalem  In which Jerusalem street art prompts an appreciation of the little wonders God scatters throughout life.

Episode 6: Discovering The Power Of Faith Beside The Jordan River.  In which an encounter with a German priest leads to a reflection on being the beloved child of God.

Episode 7: When Your Identity Is Attacked:  Lessons From The Judean Desert.  In which we visit St George of Choziba Monastery and learn from the temptation of Jesus.

Episode 8: In The Shadow Of A Great Cathedral, I Learned That Ordinary Daily Life Has Great Dignity.  In which Sister Beatrice of the Chemin Neuf Community has a message about the miracle of the mundane.

Episode 9:  Learn About The Person Of Peace Principle.  In which a visit to Sepphoris prompts a reflection on why Jesus left Nazareth.

Episode 10: Jesus Based His Ministry In A Home, Not An Institution.  In which our pilgrims visit Capernaum and reflect on Jesus strategy of discipleship.

Episode 11: Remember The Genocide The World Forgot.  In which my visits to the Armenian quarter of Jerusalem remind me that past atrocities have contemporary relevance.
