RESOURCES

Prepared Pilgrims and Hosts

Below are some of the resources we use to prepare our pilgrims and hosts for the journey ahead. We work with pilgrims and hosts to make sure they get to read worthwhile texts and have a chance to discuss those texts.

Media

We have different media scattered throughout the website, but we figure it is good to have a central location for the media as well. Below are the different interviews, presentations, and links to videos.
