PILGRIMAGE TO LINDISFARNE, HOLY ISLAND AND IONA, SCOTLAND
Come Journey with Us as we travel to the sacred Thin Places of Lindisfarne (Holy Island), UK and Iona, Scotland. Together, in this sacred cradle of Christianity, we will explore the vast mystery of God’s grace and transforming love, that calls us Beyond These Shores of the familiar and comfortable to live more fully the life we've been created to live. It is where we listen for the answer to Mary Oliver’s question “what will you do with your one wild and precious life?”
