David Brooks quotes the Greeks: "We suffer our way to Wisdom."

I think that describes my multi-year, multi-stage pilgrim experience pretty well. How about you?
Hi Kitsambler
...a good listen.. Doesn't take too long either.

I related to the 'Valley of disconnection'...
the 'weavers' ... good description......

Thanks for the video. The guy spoke almost too fast for me to be able to focus. I hope he has really found joy. I refuse to say more! I am just glad the sun is shining here, and now! But why do I walk? I walk because I want to, and to spend time with a friend in pursuit of a meaningful time of just being alive and being in the moment. And yes: it is amazing, walking in the steps of those from so long ago... amazing.

We walk, because ... we are made for.
God gave us legs and feet.

If we were made for flying, he‘d given us wings to fly.
