Journey Moments

From our friends at The Jesuit Post, a new series on journeys:

For many people, summer is a time to journey: a time to travel, to hit the road, and to explore. Throughout the summer, TJP will bring you stories about these journey moments. We’ll hear from young women who are walking across Spain on the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. We’ll accompany Jesuits who are following the Latin American migration corridor to the United States. We’ll also follow Journey’s Steve Perry as he…no, wait, nevermind. He turned us down.

There are plenty of reasons to start a journey: to seek a refuge from violence and turmoil; to seek greater self-understanding, a sense of who who we are and where we come from, to seek a better life for our families or our children. The list goes on and on and on and on (apologies for the continual Journey references)

When we journey, we are seekers.

You can read the first installment, on The Migrant Corridor, here.
