Full Title
And grace will lead me home: a guide for pilgrim journals
Author
Paul H Rohde
Abstract
The author explored the impact of a guide for journal writing on students who travel. Using pilgrimage theology he created a series of prompts and accompanying quotations from the Bible and ancient and contemporary pilgrims to spur attentiveness and feed reflection on sacramental faith in every part of a traveler's story. The guide was tested in both cocurricular and curricular service learning. In subsequent assessment students and faculty affirmed journal writing with the guide for broadening attentiveness, evoking more substantive and personal reflection, and supporting faithful integration of the experience, especially the narration of liminality and sacramental encounters.
