Inspiration NYC 2017: Recounting a Pilgrimage

Last month, 19 youth and adults from UPUMC spent a week in New York City. Unlike previous trips that focused on serving with our hands or inspiring others with our music, this was more of an urban retreat - a chance to step outside of our routines and listen for God's call in our lives. This once-in-a-lifetime journey actually began months before as the youth and adult mentors met in small groups, listened to specific sermons, read books, listened to music, and read articles that were all designed to get us ready for this trip. We did these things so that this would be more than just another tourist group vacation. It was a pilgrimage - that is to say that we took this trip to intentionally deepen our spiritual journeys and to grow together – not only as friends, but as Christian brothers and sisters.more...
