Beginning!

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen. I begin this journey in the name of the Most Holy Trinity. My travels are a pilgrimage/sabbatical/holiday. I plan to visit the Sub-Continent, Europe and Israel.
1. After a short visit in Dubai, I will spend a month in Pakistan. I was assigned there from 1979 – 2000, so it will be a chance to re-connect, to spend time with colleagues and to visit many other friends.
2. Then I will travel to Romania, Italy and Spain. The greater part of that time will be walking the Camino from Granada to Santiago de Compostela.
3. Then I will spend a month in Israel doing a course “In the Footsteps of Jesus”.
My travels will bring me to the three major Christian pilgrimage destinations of the past two millennia, Rome, Santiago de Compostela and Jerusalem. I will carry many family and friends with me on the way, in my heart, in my thoughts and in my prayers. They too will carry me in the same way. Our different but simultaneous journeys will be held in the embrace of the Holy Three, giving us communion. May Christ be our companion and guide on the way. May the Spirit be our strength and our life. May the Father send us forth and bring us home safely. Amen.
