The People's Pilgrimage says goodbye to Italy and is warmly welcomed in Geneva at the Ecumenical Centre.back to listing
by Yeb Saño,
Last week we arrived in Geneva, Switzerland, signaling a new stage in our journey to Paris. One where we had to say goodbye to Italy, a county that had become very dear to us.
But this sadness of leaving Italy was helped by the incredible welcome we had from the people and organisations of Geneva.
We were hosted by Geneva’s Ecumenical Centre where the Lutheran World Federation, World Council of Churches and ACT Alliance all have their headquarters. The leaders of these organisations welcomed us to Geneva, which was a huge honour for our group.
A local welcome of The People's Pilgrimage; Alex Price/OurVoicesMeeting with these groups reminded us of the central spiritual dimension of our journey. Both our own spiritual growth, but also the spirituality at the heart of so many of the people and organisations who have helped make our walk possible.
