A Pilgrimage Worth Taking.

This weekend our congregation begins an eight-week journey through The Pilgrim's Progress.

Our goal is to reconnect with this historic Christian classic that "breathes grace" in every paragraph. Like the Scriptures themselves, this amazing allegory equips humans to make their own pilgrimages from wherever they may be to the Celestial City.

If you doubt it's a fun read, just consider that this book has simply never been out of print since it was published in 1678. Especially in modern English, it's in the action category.

Let me invite you to sit a spell and engage your imagination with this parable. It just might change your life. Our congregation wants to place these Bible-soaked images back into our collective consciousness. In Bunyan's classic we find doctrine incarnated in picture. Truth embedded in story. Feast your mind's eye on Christian's tale of travel from this world to the world that's to come.
