pilgrimage


 

A number of years ago I was talking with a long-retired man who had had an illustrious career. He had been a federal court judge, and close friend of Harry Truman. He held up his cell phone and said - “right here, in my pocket, there is more power than I ever had in my career.”

Yes. Our online connection is power. It is access to libraries and education and voices, all available while we stay put wherever we are. Virtual learning is something we have come to rely upon.

 

But there's something about going someplace that adds new dimension to one's knowledge. In religious circles, it could be called a pilgrimage. A Pilgrimage is a journey or search of moral or spiritual significance. Putting oneself physically into a place is educational in ways outside of our heads. It's not just a way to learn, but a way to connect, to feel, to breath in a place of historical or religious significance.

 

So much has been shown us, taught us, in recent days and months about the history of the Tulsa Race Massacre. This week we are going to pilgrimage to the site. We will take our education outside of our heads, to experience, connect, feel, and breath in the place where this painfulhistory happened.

I'm looking forward to the journey, as well as the companionship.

Join us if you can.

 

Peace be with you............... Jeannie
