During the last two weeks of March, a group of Kirk members and friends traveled together to Israel. This Holy Land pilgrimage is also a reminder that all of life is a journey. In ways small and large, all of us have to deal with those we leave behind and with those things we seek as we make our way through life. As people of faith, we trust God is with us in this journey. This is also the promise of Easter. We believe we are not alone but that God is with us in all of life.Whatever our circumstances, wherever the journey takes us, our risen Lord reminds us we need not be afraid, because we are surrounded by God’s traveling mercies.
