A look at Covid-19 through the lens of Christian pilgrimage
Wednesday, July 15 4:00 – 5:00 pm EDT
Join us as we hear from Paul H. Lang, author of The Pilgrim’s Compass: Finding and Following the God We Seek.” We’ll examine the experience of the Covid-19 pandemic in light of the practices of Christian pilgrimage” and learn what lessons can be applied to our daily “new normal” living. Many among us remain mostly or partially confined to home and so we’ll consider the relationship between pilgrimage and “home” and how these new experiences of “home” fit into an understanding of pilgrimage. We’ll also use a pilgrimage lens to examine our relationship with neighbors, strangers and others as the pandemic and racial justice uprisings intersect in this unprecedented time.
Paul H. Lang is Head of Staff at First Presbyterian Church in Fargo, North Dakota, and Executive Director of The Institute of Church Renewal. He is a graduate of Furman University and Columbia Theological Seminar and is the creator of The Pilgrimage, an adult faith-formation program.
