Preacher: Rev. Dr. Greg Hunt

Keywords: pilgrimage, psalms, spiritual practice


Pilgrimage is an actually an old spiritual practice that has been revived today. Psalm 121, our passage of scripture for today, is a pilgrimage song. It belongs to a group of psalms ranging from Psalm 120 to Psalm 134 . Together this group of Psalms bears a Hebrew inscription that is translated as the Psalms of Ascent. Most scholars agree that “ascent” in the title refers to going up to Jerusalem. Judaism has a long tradition of pilgrimage to the temple at Jerusalem. Christians have also often taken pilgrimages to Jerusalem, Rome and other places of spiritual significance.
