Last fall my father-in-law, Karl Stonebraker, a United Methodist pastor in Ohio, hiked the Camino de Santiago. It’s one of the oldest Christian pilgrimages and is located in the north of Spain. Definitely the sort of thing I’d like to do one day. His companion on the trip is a long-time friend in ministry, James Thobaben, professor of Church in Society at Asbury Theological Seminary. I became friends with the Thobabens while a student at Asbury, which was good since they’re so close with my in-laws.
Karl’s journal of the experience is available online here. Check it out — plenty of good pictures too.
