June 12, 2022 (Good Shepherd pilgrims meet in Melrose, Scotland) - A devotion by Amanda Fitz

Today marks the official start of the pilgrimage for those walking St. Cuthbert's Way in Scotland.  As we prepare to depart from Melrose, we've been asked: “How we will prepare our hearts and minds to receive what God has in store?”. 

Although there are the obvious physical preparations of ensuring the proper footwear, preparing water bottles and packing snacks, I find my mind filled with the happenings of the past few days and how God has already shown himself amongst us.  Unfortunately, many of us have faced tremendous obstacles, including lost luggage, unexpected travel delays, and illness.  While any one of these obstacles could have derailed our plans, through the resources of our community of fellow travelers, God has provided each and every time.  I am truly humbled by the outpouring of generosity and compassion I have received and seen shared between our group of pilgrims.  If I take nothing else away from this experience, I will forever be reminded how blessed I am to be a member of a caring Christian community that brings the love of God to others.  Please continue to keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we walk in the way of the Saints.
