Pilgrimage and Travel

Although less common in evangelical culture than in Eastern spirituality, travel and pilgrimage are faith-deepening tools and significant expressions of Sabbath for many contemporary Christians. The natural destination for the Christian traveler—and all Abrahamic pilgrims—is the Holy Land, but other sites and experiences have also become destinations for spiritual development: the “thin places” of Celtic Ireland, the Taizé community of Northern France, National Parks, megachurches, short term missions trips, even theme parks such as The Holy Land Experience in Orlando, Florida. Often the greatest benefit of spiritual travel is a rediscovery of place and a renewed interest in finding God in the spaces we inhabit.
