Pilgrimage

Story

Pilgrimage reflects my experience of being held down beneath the surface of the rapids, cold and alone with no hope.  While viewing the image a Jewish woman mentioned that young men and women dress in black and purple robes and make annual pilgrimages to concentration camps in Germany.  So, pilgrimage it was.  A Christian took in the painting and shared her interpretation:  Those gathered at the foot of the cross after Christ’s crucifixion.  Pilgrimage evokes strong responses in the observers, including a stampede from a Bostonian.  What is revealed?

Verse

"Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage." Psalm 84:5
