Pilgrimage. Journey. Sacred. Thin Space. Re-create. Iona, Scotland. Do these words call to you? They did to Madrona Presbyterian member, Mary DeJong, who has journeyed to Iona, Scotland many times both on personal pilgrimage and as a retreat leader for vocational discernment retreats for university students.
Waymarkers - a collection of prayers, poems and reflections - is a result of Mary’s own personal pilgrimage to Iona in 2009. The vision for the Waymarkers journal is to aid the pilgrim in preparing a sacred time where both a journey and a place will guide the traveler to greater connectivity with self, others and the Holy. By engaging the ancient discipline of pilgrimage, the journey will require the traveler to practice listening for the voice of God. Waymarkers was written to guide and engage this sacred act of listening while on the journey of a lifetime.
