Because We Need It: ‘To Be a Pilgrim’

If plodding through the daily news these days doesn’t make you feel like you’ve wound up in Pilgrim’s Progress, I don’t know what will. I sometimes think John Bunyan wrote that book, and this hymn, especially for us.

We must be pilgrims, not castaways. God put us here and now for a reason. Let us shoulder the burdens He gave us, and serve Him with all our hearts.

I particularly love this version of the hymn by Maddy Prior and the Carnival Band. Go get ’em, Maddy!
