Traveling is always a charming experience. All healthy people want to travel. They want to know new places, and depend on their ability and interests, to know new people, new thoughts, and cultures that they did not know.
This travel experience that we all have is also a means of understanding the message Christ, and later the apostles, wanted to give, as they all traveled and rarely lived for long periods in the same city or region. In the journey of Christ through Samaria, emerged the encounter with the unknown Samaritans. Philip’s descent in the desert brought the meeting with the high-ranking Ethiopian financial officer. The journey of the apostle Paul through Athens provoked his appearance and his speech in the Arios Pagos (Supreme Court of Cassation).
And it is obvious that whenever a person moves, their horizons, their thoughts, and their tolerances move as well. They enrich themselves with experiences and so do the people who they encounter.
Spiritual renewal is often a function of our mental health and vice versa.
And the journey, the way to a destination we love and adore, is of great value. Indeed, when this destination is not only surrounded by a temporary value, then even the toil of traveling is forgotten because of the high value of the result.
