Let us keep looking to Jesus. He is the one who started this journey of faith. And he is the one who completes the journey of faith.
Have you ever gone on a long trip? Maybe it was a holiday to an exotic destination. Possibly time spent living in an unfamiliar place. Perhaps an adventure that was unplanned or unexpected. No matter the journey, it likely took planning and coordination. This process may have been met with certain feelings of excitement, curiosity, even hesitation and apprehension.
The truth is, we are all on a journey. This isn’t a surprise. We are sojourners through life. On a quest for purpose, meaning, and identity. Our travels are met with mountain tops and valleys. While it may feel lonely at times, it’s important to remember that we are not alone. At least we don’t have to be.
2023 is a fresh start. A New Year. An unwritten page in the story of our life’s travels. Our destination is clear. The Holy Spirit is our guide. The map of God’s Word lights our way. This year don’t travel alone. Join us as we journey together! This year we will start off by drawing inspiration from the journey of Christian in the book Pilgrim’s Progress by John Bunyan. Just as the main character in the book named Christian embarked on a journey to the celestial city, we too want to set our sights on the ultimate goal of living in a closer relationship with God.
January - April
The Pilgrim's Progress
The Pilgrim’s Progress is a 1678 Christian allegory written by John Bunyan. It is regarded as one of the most significant works of theological fiction in English literature and a progenitor of the narrative aspect of Christian media. It has been translated into more than 200 languages and never been out of print.
We invite you to join us this year, unpacking this literary classic and discovering the relevancy of many of the chapters, locations and characters. Every week we will focus on a new chapter and unpack the timeless principles that still apply in our world today.
Are you ready for the journey?
Our 13-week journey through Pilgrim’s Progress will be from January 8th to April 2nd. Below you’ll find the version of the book we’ll be using and referring to during this series.
We’ll also continue to update and add new resources that will allow you to go deeper with each week’s reading.
