I had one of those wonderful mornings where a lot of things I love doing all lined up harmonically. I arose early to wonderful weather. It is Friday. I traveled to YouthFront Camp South. I taught and hosted Dr. Hardy's class on Pilgrimage and Formation. We met in the new Prayer Chapel. I shared the role that Pilgrimage has played in my personal life, family life, YouthFront life and Jacob's Well life. I hope the rest of the weekend goes as well.
Here is the Reading List for this class for those interested in this subject.
