An Incredible Journey
Several times in the last month I have heard or read about the incredible journey of Eric Kennel and Dave Landis. I have been taking a seminary course this spring in Lancaster with Eric. I read about the trip in the recent Lamplighter, the alumni publication of Christopher Dock. I also heard that Eric shared about his trip with the board of Kids and Cultures. The trip lasted 431 days. They went to 45 countries on 4 continents! Wow!
I am amazed by the wise impulses that led to this trip and the insights gained over the many miles of travel. You can read more about their trip at Viva el Viaje.
I find within myself many similar yearnings and interests–to see the world from a global perspective, to be able to travel, to approach life as a journey, to understand the value of pilgrimage in the spiritual life…
If you get a chance, I highly recommend taking the time to read Eric’s journal entry from December 5, 2005. My prayer is that more Americans will come to see the dangers of continuing our present course of foreign policy.
