Welcome to the Pilgrimage

“But, following Jesus is a process: it takes time; some surge forward quickly while others hang back and struggle. That’s part of what it means to respond to following Jesus. We do not expect anyone to “get perfected” all at once, so we need to admit right up front in the discipleship summons of Jesus that the call to “go and sin no more” is not followed perfectly by anyone — and Jesus knows this. He offers his hand to help, he offers his hand to point the way, but the hand that guides is next to the hand that helps when we fall.”

– Scot McKnight, in www.jesuscreed.org
