Congo is Purple! Maps and Pilgrimage

The Rev. Julie Love did a wonderful job of explaining to the children of the parish of St. Paul's Episcopal Church in San Raphael, CA where Congo is on a world-map during a children-based worship service yesterday (1st Sunday of Lent). On a big world map, we could all tell that in the middle of the African continent was a purple shaded country: CONGO (shouted all the children with rhythm instruments in their hands and shaking joyfully at the word "Congo"). A Lent color for a country of Africa.

In our pilgrim based life, we some times need to have easy to identify maps to know where we are going, or to locate where we are on the pilgrimage. And color coded helps!

Bien Camino,

Pilgrim peace, Brett

Great to have a lenten color on a map - but purple is my favorite color, too, so it's a joyful one for me.

There was a new color for the mississippi river on a map I just visited. No longer periwinkle, the cerulean river zig-zags as a border on my home state of Mississippi, twisting and bending back, here and there, lost and found.

Oh well, I guess that symbolizes for me change, and changes at home in good ole Mississippi, and perhaps the change the earth would make to recreate itself if we weren't damning it up all the time.
