More than a trip, Wikipedia describes a Pilgrimage as a long journey or search of great moral or spiritual significance. A pilgrimage may involve an outer journey engaging the physical body, and it may involve an inner journey engage the psyche or spirit. Pilgrims, however, undergo a series of complicated changes that are sometimes difficult to describe in the process of a pilgrimage. Most often these changes engage the whole person. Usually pilgrims speak of being different at the end of the pilgrimage than they were when they started.
Pilgrim Cafe is a continuing conversation at table with the author and others who stop for wayside moments to chat. Pick up a karafte or mug of your favorite beverage and join the conversation. Stay as long as you like. Return whenever you want to rejoin the conversation. Post your own thoughts inviting other’s response. Imagine a table that stretches beyond all borders.
