“When Yahweh became a man, He was a homeless vagrant. He walked through Palestine proclaiming that a mysterious kingdom had arrived… He called people to follow Him, and that meant walking.” Charles Foster

As humans, we are prone to wander. The Bible is full of stories of wanderings. History is the same way. Sometimes the reasons are simple. We need a better job, we go where the food is, we need to escape bad weather, wars or plagues. But sometimes people go at great expense—and risk—in the name of God, both to serve Him, or to find a place that feels sacred.

But what if you can’t go? What if you can’t leave due to responsibilities or infirm health? What if the only journey you can go on is no further than school, work, or even the bath room?

THE SACRED JOURNEY is part of The Ancient Practices Series and this is quite an intriguing book. I read it once for review—I’m going to go back and reread this once for me. My husband, who is a pastor, wants to read this book too. I think I’m going to try and get some of the other books in this series.

I was quite impressed with this, especially with some of the stories that they shared in the book, and it shows me that no matter where you are, if we look, our paths lead to God. I loved this book and highly recommend it. $12.99. 232 pages.
