on a pilgrimage

It is in the context of the local church that we experience the joys and sorrows, the agonies and ecstasies, the certainties and the perplexities that go along with being Christian people on pilgrimage toward the full consummation of what it means to be Easter people: that final handing over to God when God shall be all in all.  It is in the local church that we talk about the things that we believe and strive to live the gospel values to which we have committed ourselves and discover ever more fully how deeply one with another we are.

– William Shannon, Silence on Fire
