The Canterbury Tales: Good Shepherd Style
CGS on Pilgrimage, July 2018
With the upcoming program year having its focus on getting back to the basics of our faith tradition, it seemed quite fitting that a group of parishioners would travel together to Kent in England for a week during the summer of 2018 for a visit Canterbury, the primary see of the Anglican Communion. The Episcopal Church grew out of the Church of England after the American Revolution, and we remain the oldest member of the worldwide Anglican Communion outside of the British Isles. That said, heading to Canterbury certainly falls under the umbrella of getting back to the basics.
During their visit, our pilgrims had the privilege of worshiping with the Archbishop of Canterbury, lodging within the Canterbury Cathedral complex, enjoying a birds-eye and behind-the-scenes view of the ongoing cathedral restoration, making day trips to Coventry, St. Augustine's Library and Dover, and a engaging in whole host of other spirit-filled and formative experiences. Our pilgrims and those of us who followed their travels on social media are still talking about this very special journey, and we look forward to many more pilgrimage opportunities to come.
