Pilgrimage is a common religious idea. It isnít often associated with Christmas. Maybe the weather is too rotten? But the people in the Christmas story were all travellers. So might we be, too.
- We are travellers on the road to seek you today
the stories of Christmas are stories of journeys.
- Mary and Joseph had to travel to Bethlehem
the holy family were pilgrims before Christ could come.
- The shepherds decided to go and see
working people went to find where God was at work.
- Wise men followed the pointing star
kings from far away seeking truth from above.
- Christ still comes to us where we are
but we also must seek him in response to his love,
- our journey may begin at any time or place
you will lead the way for us and you will sustain us.
- So help us travel our own road of faith
that we may see for ourselves, and believe in you.
