What Michel learned | Camino Peace Pilgrimage | Heartbeat

 

IMG_7375One part of the profound impact the pilgrimage had on me was realizing that I can fall deeply in love with a range of faith traditions without compromising my Christian faith. Prior to the pilgrimage I questioned whether it was possible to go beyond coexisting with multiple traditions, to a place of experiencing and loving other traditions, without watering them all down.  My answer came our first day on the Camino as our entire group engaged in salah.  Throughout the week the answer came again and again with a resounding YES!
