“I was honored to participate in the 2013 Pilgrimage and thoroughly enjoyed it.  I benefited so much as a Methodist and as a person from my connection with the wonderful group I traveled with.  We walked in the way of John Wesley, which was thrilling and humbling.  I recommend this journey for any Methodist!”   -Bonnie Seay | Madison, TN
