Ken Cox will be interviewing Richard Frazer, minister of Greyfriars Kirk in Edinburgh, to discuss his pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. This thrilling story is now published in his new book, Travels With A Stick.
This is an extraordinary story of a journey on one of the most renowned pilgrim routes in the world – the 1,000km ‘Camino’ to Santiago de Compostela in France and northern Spain.
A unique and engrossing travelogue which paints a vivid picture of the journey and is also a very personal account of the way in which pilgrim journeys can be a source of emotional transformation, enable the rediscovery of our oneness
with the natural, and be a source of spiritual healing.
Almost 300,000 people ‘officially’ complete the journey to Santiago each year – hundreds of thousands more travel at least part of the way.
In this book, Richard Frazer discovers on his pilgrimage to the shrine of St James the Great how a journey – wherever it is made – undertaken with an open and hospitable heart can provide spiritual renewal and transformation, filling what many people see as the spiritual void in 21st century life.
This absorbing account reveals how the pilgrim journey can be nourishment for the human heart. It connects us to landscape and brings us to the mystery of what it is to be human and vulnerable and open to the kindness of strangers
and the gift of the new and the unexpected.
Richard Frazer is minister of Greyfriars Kirk in Edinburgh. He founded and chairs the Grassmarket Community Project, which helps the most vulnerable. He has been influential in the revival of pilgrimage in Scotland and in the Church of
Scotland’s decision to officially promote and revive pilgrimage after 450 years.
