Pilgrims together

Members of Pilgrims rehearsing a dance to “Jehovah Jireh” in the late 1990s.

I am a founding member of Pilgrims, a mid-week Bible Study group connected to the Scots International Church Rotterdam, on and off, since the mid-1990s.

The latest hiatus was due to Covid, but we’re starting up again. I’m so looking forward to spending time as pilgrims together, studying the Bible and deepening our relationships with one another and with the Living God.

May you too find joy and encouragement in the company of pilgrims where you are.

It appears I’ve chosen “Together” as theme of the month before – in October 2017, exactly five years ago. Well, why not? It’s a good theme, worth a revisit.

A prayer

Lord God, we thank you
for calling us into the company
of those who trust in Christ
and seek to obey his will.
May your Spirit guide and strengthen us
in mission and service to your world,
for we are strangers no longer
but pilgrims together on the way to your Kingdom.

Prayer of the Inter-Church Process (The Swanwick Declaration)
from The Book of a Thousand Prayers by Angela Ashwin, #529

Grow to maturity
History matters
How good, how pleasant
