The Camino de Santiago is an ancient pilgrimage to the cathedral of the Spanish city Santiago de Compostela. Legend has it that the remains of James, the apostle, are entombed there. Every year more than 100,000 pilgrims traverse several routes to the cathedral. This year Cedars member Bill Scarvie walked the 790-kilometer French Route across the north of Spain from the Pyrenees to Santiago. Along the way, one question commanded his attention: “How can I make this predominately Roman Catholic act of faith into an authentic Unitarian Universalist religious experience?” Guest musician Brooksie Wells will offer original songs.
