The end approaches and I’m more attached to this crazy bunch of people than I ever imagined. Our endless fellowship, whether in our living spaces (tents), or kitchen (propane burners under an open sky,) or walking the streets of these foreign cities, continues to build relationship in every direction. Even our late-comers, Hannah and Dave have quickly been assimilated into our band of pilgrims. As we head off to our last major city before leaving the continent, I’m looking back on our journey and appreciating this experience in even greater ways. Not only the exposure to art, architecture and history but experiencing these things within a crucible of intense relationship with one another has served to enrich an experience that might otherwise seem somewhat recreational.
