Virtual Spain and Holy Land Pilgrimages

September 5

Description

Virtual Spain and Holy Land Pilgrimages
Join the Transformation Group in photo pilgrimages to the Spanish Camino del Norte (Madrid, Bay of Biscay, Basque Country, Bilbao) with Trudy Gygi on Sept. 5 and the Holy Land with Toni Gray and James Martin in Jesus: A Pilgrimage on Nov. 7, Dec. 5 and 2019. Meetings will be in the Flatirons Room at 9:30 am. All welcome.

James Martin, SJ, gifted storyteller, editor at large of America magazine, and popular media commentator, brings the Gospels to life in Jesus: A Pilgrimage, and invites believers and seekers alike to experience Jesus through Scripture, prayer and travel.

Combining the fascinating insights of historical Jesus studies with profound spiritual insights about the Christ of faith, Father Martin recreates the world of first-century Galilee and Judea to usher you into Jesus’s life and times and show readers how Jesus speaks to us today. Martin also brings together the most up-to-date Scripture scholarship, wise spiritual reflections, and lighthearted stories about traveling through the Holy Land with a fellow (and funny) Jesuit, visiting important sites in the life of Jesus of Nazareth.

The person at the heart of the Gospels can seem impossibly distant. Stories about his astonishing life and ministry—clever parables that upended everyone’s expectations, incredible healings that convinced even skeptics, nature miracles that dazzled the dumbstruck disciples—can seem far removed from our own daily lives, hard to understand, and at times irrelevant. But in Jesus you will come to know him as Martin knows him: Messiah and Savior, as well as friend and brother.
