Called to Journey What is the difference between a trip and a journey?
Trips • Pack • Preparation • Expected and Planned • Visit Places • Vacation or Getaway • Short and Fun • Family • Travel
Journeys • Long Time • Goal • Work • Search • Quest Learn About Yourself
Trip versus Journey • Trip: Chosen destination; physical; planned; self-discovery not necessary. • Journey: Discovering things along the way; unknown destination; focus of movement (inner movement); physical movement not necessary.
Religion is a journey. • Religion is discovering open questions which need life answers (answers which we discover by living them). • Religion is a life-long search with open-ended questions. • Religion is looking at life with a new, fresh perspective.
