We are celebrating the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation in 2017. On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther nailed the 95 theses on the church door in Wittenberg, Germany. Join me as we visit Eisleben, where Luther was born; Wittenberg, where he taught; Worms were he stood against the empire and the church for his belief in the Word of God; Wartburg Castle where he translated the New Testament into German. We will also visit some places connected with Dietrich Bonhoeffer and learn more about this important Lutheran theologian. Join me for the opportunity for Spiritual growth, history, a broader understanding of who we are as followers of Luther, and fun.

Members and Friends of Ascension, My wife, Adriana, and I would like to invite you to join us on a very special pilgrimage. As you may or may not know, 2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. As part of our celebration of this momentous occasion, we will be traveling to Germany in September 2017. Because the people of Germany are making such special preparations for this important anniversary, there will never be a better time to walk in the footsteps of men like Martin Luther and Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Maybe you have been a lifelong member of Lutheran congregations and it is the right time to draw closer to your theological heritage. Maybe you have just recently come to experience the Lutheran movement through Ascension, and you`d like to get to know us as Lutheran Christians better. Whatever the case may be, Adriana and I hope you will prayerfully consider joining us for this once-in-a-lifetime pilgrimage. Ryan+

      

Spain: A Pilgrimage of Mindfulness View Brochure (PDF or DOC)
Visiting: Spain
Dates: 9/22/17 - 10/4/17   Cost: $5795 G#: 170903

The Camino de Santiago (the Way of St. James) is a large network of ancient pilgrim routes stretching across Europe and coming together at the tomb of the Apostle James (Santiago in Spanish) who brought Christianity to the Iberian Peninsula. The network is similar to a river system – small brooks join together to make streams, and the streams join together to make rivers, most of which join together to make the Camino Francés. On this journey you will join the many pilgrims from around the world walking the last section of the Camino Francés to Santiago de Compostela. You will be following in the footsteps of hundreds of thousands of pilgrims who have made the journey on foot since the 8th century. The Camino is for many a life-changing experience and always an unforgettable adventure! This trip includes walking the last 63 miles of the Camino, which means that you can request your Compostela, or certificate of completion of the pilgrimage. Throughout the trip, those not walking will ride in the group’s private shuttle and meet up with the walkers at `checkpoints` along the way. There will be opportunities to visit small villages and hamlets along the route, and enjoy time at leisure to explore. The driver will provide some information and direction so that you can make the most of your visits.
