Here's our Saturday email to you at the end of the first week of preparation. During this week, the focus has been on familiarizing yourself with the document "New Worlds Being Born" linked here, preparing for the practices that will be part of your pilgrimage (praying, writing, listening, etc.), and planning a pilgrimage route in your neighborhood. Here is a link to the first week of the Pilgrimage.
As Madeline reminded us this week, it's important to remember that you really don’t need to create a program or curriculum for yourselves because this is being done by the pilgrimage planning team. Each week, the prep materials readings/audio clips plus suggested prayer practices and journaling prompts will be sent to you. All you have to do is to follow the rather simple instructions each week. As you plan your route, think about how you want to incorporate these practices into your lives each week over the next 10 weeks.
Here is a link to the prep pages for Week Two. We will go over these a bit on Sunday.
Also, some of you have asked to see the entire San Francisco route in advance. Here's the pilgrimage route in SF from Howard Thurman's home to Land's End at the edge of the sea.
Finally, there's an opportunity for some to gather midweek in a smaller pilgrimage group. If you are interested in being part of this group, email either of us.
Blessings on your preparations. Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday 9am PST/5pm GMT
