Pilgrimage is all about journey, about destination, about the road, often the well travelled road. This year members of the congregation of Southwark Cathedral are travelling along a road that was travelled by St Paul. Paul had received a visitor in a dream, calling him to Macedonia and from there into Greece (Acts 16.9). He was called in order to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to the people of this fascinating country. They knew a great deal about Gods, they knew a great deal about philosophy but they had not yet heard of Jesus Christ and his resurrection. It was this news, this new way of thinking, this new way of modelling life that Paul brought. He was to travel from the north of the country down to Athens, the centre of so much thinking, the centre of so much worship. In travelling he would visit the places which we now know so well from the New Testament and from the letters that he would write – Philippi and of course Corinth.
We invite you to accompany us on our journey. We hope that you will get a feel of the places that we will be visiting and will be able to share in some of the thinking and praying that we will be doing. It will be an exciting journey in the steps of one of the most influential and formative of thinkers and followers of Jesus.
