By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to set out for a place that he was to receive as an inheritance; and he set out, not knowing where he was going. ~ Hebrews 11:8
A pilgrim follows in the footsteps of Abraham, setting out without knowing exactly where she or he is going. The destination may not be geographical. It may be a new belief, relationship or way of living. Whatever the desired outcome may be, the journey will entail risk. There is an uncomfortable, but undeniable, connection between risk and faith.
Knowing this, what pilgrim destination might you set this Lent?
Prayer: O Creator, give me pilgrim courage.

It is a literal pilgrimage for me this Lenten season, Ruth, as I prepare to leave the home I shared with Bill for 42 years and start over in a new place. Lots of unknowns!! Thank you for your reflections and for helping me chart the journey.
