I’m starting this new “Pilgrim Shepherd” blog just about a week before leaving for Turkey to lead the fifth Early Christian World Pilgrimage. I hope to be ore faithful in updating this blog than I was at the previous incarnation of “Pilgrim Shepherd” on Blogspot. You can still find some good stuff there. I made the move to WordPress because I’ve become familiar with it — our Good Shepherd Parish website uses it — and it seems both easier and more versatile.
Time for a new look too. What you see now is the default template, which has a very evocative picture. I’ll probably keep it for a while, until the content dictates something else.
Whenever I run across something interesting, I plan to post it and comment on it. Whener something dawns on the that I think may be worth sharing, I’m going to try to express it, even if imperfectly.
None of us possesses the Truth. As a Catholic Christian, I think it’s much more real to say that the Truth possesses us. But there are many diverse ways of catching a glimmer of that one Truth. Exploring and sharing these glimmers as we journey through life is what Pilgrimage is all about. And we are all Pilgrims, sojourning in a strange and foreign land, seeking the home that Goodness has prepared for us. Add Beauty as Goodness and Truth coming alive in each other, and we have a kind of metaphor to describe the Trinity, don’t we?
Goodness , Truth, and Beauty — how and where do we find it in our world and beyond our world, in our lives and in one another?
So I hope it will be worth your while to drop by and explore with me now and then.
