Pilgrimage to the Holy Land
Certificate in Spiritual Formation
Pilgrimage is one of the oldest and most important spiritual disciplines. The capstone of the Certificate in Spiritual Formation program is a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Columbia Seminary will sponsor this journey from March 5-20, 2014. However the journey really begins on March 4 with Orientation in Atlanta. All participants are required to attend all sessions of orientation. We will leave as a group from Atlanta on March 5, 2014.
This once in a lifetime journey consists of 7 days in Galilee and 7 days in Jerusalem. The pilgrimage is designed for spiritual formation and renewal. We will make excursions from the hotel in the mornings, leaving the afternoons free for small groups, rest, journaling and worship. Academy Travel in Decatur will handle all your travel arrangements. There will be readings and orientation before the journey and reflection papers when we return. Remember, if you are doing this pilgrimage in order to graduate, you must complete all other certificate work 3 months prior to the departure date, December 5, 2013.
