On this week’s podcast, John Pritchard considers how the experience of pilgrimage can enrich our everyday lives once we return home.

This talk was recorded at the latest Church Times Festival of Pilgrimage, which took place online on Monday.

The experience of pilgrimage, he hopes, “will permeate the rest of our lived experience. . . The  essence of religion is actually about the presence of God in the midst of everyday life. Not God in a box on the edge of our everyday lives, but God in the heart of it all, because that’s where discipleship is to be found right at the heart of everything.”

The Rt Revd John Pritchard is a former Bishop of Oxford and a popular writer of books such as The Life and Work of a Priest, Why go to Church?, and God Lost and Found.
